CORINTH -- A Corinth school bus driver received two tickets Thursday following a collision with another vehicle in front of the elementary school.

Thomas Larmon, 60, of Greenwich, received tickets for failing to stop at a stop sign and for failing to yield the right of way, said Sgt. Brent Dupras of the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office.

Larmon was driving a school bus carrying students when he collided with a 2005 Ford sedan that was traveling on Eggleston Street, Dupras said.

Nobody in either vehicle was injured.

The Ford sustained extensive damage along the driver-side door, Dupras said.

The driver of the Ford was 91-year-old Bessie Ward of Main Street in Corinth.

The accident happened after the school day had come to an end.

The bus was a full-size vehicle that holds about 65 passengers, but it was less than half full during the accident.

Some students took another bus home, while others were picked up by their parents.

School staff and Corinth EMS members were on the scene to help calm students who were upset following the crash.

Larmon will have to appear at Corinth Town Court at a later date.

    Install GPS devices that will answer and monitor any questions about the driving habits of an individual. Many company have them in their company vehicles. It will also provide valuable info in the eveny of an accident, how fast, harsh braking, location etc.

    because the crossing guard just waives the drivers on without checking for on coming traffic and no this dose not dismiss the fact that the driver didn't look but it is not all his fault.
