A Charlotte Central School student was injured while riding a Betcha Transit school bus on the morning of Feb. 17. According to the student, the driver backed the bus into a driveway to turnaround when a tree branch rammed through the back window. The branch shattered the window and hit the student in a rear seat. The Eagle ran a photograph of the bus after both school and transit officials refused to talk with the Eagle about the incident.
The student, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he his feeling better and was pleased with the response from school officials. The Eagle received an anonymous tip about the incident after the photo appeared in the paper and was posted on the Eagle website.
