A school bus was headed east on 6th in Newport Monday was going through the intersection at Nye when an SUV pulled right out in front of the school bus and got T-boned. The driver was taken to PCH with non-life threatening injuries. Nobody aboard the school bus, including the kids, was hurt. The kids were transferred to another bus to get them home hopefully without further incident.
That particular intersection has been complained about often by local residents and drivers for it to be a four way stop. Two busy roads coming together with only one road stopping seems counter-intuitive for a lot of people. And so when they pulled up to Nye, they figure the person on 6th is going to stop. Neighbors say the intersection is the scene of a lot of near misses.
