School bus involved in five-car accident
NEW PORT RICHEY -- A Pasco school bus was involved in a chain-reaction crash Monday morning that involved five vehicles and sent one person to the hospital.
The crash happened about 8:30 a.m. at Little Road and Old County Road 54, said Jack Greene, supervisor of transportation operations for the school district.
One vehicle stopped short, which caused the chain reaction, Greene said.
The bus was the fourth vehicle in the chain.
There were three Seven Springs Middle School students on the bus at the time of the crash, but no one was hurt. Greene said the students walked off the bus, got on another bus and went to school.
The driver of a truck that was hit by the school bus was taken to a local hospital, Greene said.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
Hudson man accused of assaulting officer
HUDSON -- A 37-year-old man was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer Sunday after grabbing a deputy and pushing him, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Kristofor Wendel was investigating a domestic battery at 10:20 p.m. at 12744 Robin Hood Road when he asked a man to step away from his truck.
Wendel said the man, later identified as David Ray Brady, grabbed his shirt and pushed him backwards. Brady also swore at Wendel and refused to let go of his shirt, a report said.
The deputy broke free and tried to handcuff Brady, who resisted for several minutes by refusing to place his hands behind his back.
Brady, 37, of 12744 Robin Hood Road, Hudson, was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer without violence. He also was charged with simple domestic battery of his girlfriend. Brady was being held Monday on $3,600 bail at the county jail in Land O'Lakes.
