The information investigated so far indicates a white 1998 Subaru Outback, driven by 28-year-old Cameron Duff of Reno, was traveling east on the four-lane highway when he allowed his car to cross over into the opposing lanes of travel.
The left front of his vehicle struck the left side of the westbound school bus and subsequently broke the rear axle of the bus. There were four children riding on the bus. The children and the bus driver were not injured. The collision caused substantial damage to the Subaru but Duff escaped serious injury.
Duff was transported to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno where he was treated and released. Although alcohol is not considered to be a contributing factor in this crash, fatigue is being considered a possible explanation as to why Duff allowed his car to drift into oncoming traffic.
