Driver arrested after hitting school bus

MILL CREEK — Just before 4 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, Kentucky State Police in London received a report of a two-vehicle crash on Mill Creek Road.

Upon arrival Trooper Shaler Jones determined that a 1994 Toyota pickup operated by Toby Eldridge, 30, of Somerset was traveling southwest at a high rate of speed when it failed to negotiate a curve and struck a 2006 International school bus operated by Fayrene Goodin, 39, of Parkers Lake.

The school bus was stopped near the 4-mile marker — with the stop sign and lights activated — as a student prepared to get off the bus. Goodin saw the truck approaching and quickly stopped the child just prior to impact.

Goodin and two students were treated for very minor injuries at the scene.

Eldridge was arrested and charged with operating on a suspended drivers license, along with other traffic-related offenses and unrelated arrest warrants for flagrant non-support.

A passenger in the pickup truck — Christopher Mitchell, 32, of Parkers Lake — was also arrested for alcohol intoxication.

Both occupants of the pickup were lodged in the McCreary County Detention Center.

Eldridge is scheduled to appear in McCreary District Court on May 23, while Mitchell will be arraigned on April 26.

Trooper Jones is in charge of the investigation and was assisted by officers of the McCreary County Sheriff’s Department, the McCreary County EMS and the Eagle Sawyer Fire Department.
