The driver and lone occupant of a small school bus, outfitted for private use, lost control of the vehicle just north of the Bombi Summit in the mid-afternoon of Sunday, August 10. The bus was westbound at the time.

No other vehicles were involved and police at the scene reported that the driver was walking and talking and did not appear to have any broken bones. He was, however, taken to hospital as a precaution.
