A Bulloch County school bus driver faces mandatory safety training after a collision Wednesday that resulted in no injuries.

There were only four students on Bus 038 when it struck a car from behind, said Hayley Greene, the public relations and marketing manager for the Bulloch County school system.

Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Brad Mosher said Laquanya Jones, 40, of Old Leefield Road in Brooklet, was traveling through the intersection of Veterans Memorial Parkway and Akins Boulevard around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday when she rear-ended a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old male.

Greene said the students on board were children and Langston Chapel Middle School teachers and were en route to the school to meet their parents.

Jones was not charged, but was taken for mandatory drug and alcohol testing, as is mandated by the Bulloch County Board of Education, Greene said.

Jones will also take mandatory safety courses as required by the BOE after any driver is involved in an accident, she said.
