As NewsLincolnCounty reported yesterday, a man and his son were reportedly standing next to a bus stop sign, south of Schooner Creen, milepost 137, waiting for their ride come along. Unfortunately the bus hit them both, causing very serious injuries. Both victims were taken to a local hospital for a quick evaluation and then loaded aboard a Careflight helicopter that flew them to a Portland hospital.
The exact detailed circumstances of what led up to the accident have not been released. Further information on the incident will be released by Newport Chief of Police Jason Malloy.
