Bus-car accident on Sept. 6

The first day of school got off to a rocky start for some after a vehicle rear ended a school bus on the Harburn Road Tuesday.

“My understanding is he ran into the back of the bus” said OPP community services officer Const. Timothy Negus.

A charge was laid associated with inattentive driving he said.

No one was injured in the accident and the children were taken to school in a different bus.

Single vehicle involved in Kennisis accident

There were no life-threatening injuries in a single vehicle accident on Kennisis Lake Road Wednesday Sept. 7 the OPP says.

Cont. Timothy Negus of the Haliburton Highlands detachment called the collision which happened in the morning a fluke accident.

No charges were laid.

The Haliburton Highlands OPP responded to 183 calls for service in the week of Monday Aug. 29 to Monday Sept. 5. One of those calls was to the fatal diving accident on Raven Lake.

On Labour Day Whitby man Ryan Tyms 29 hit a rock when he jumped from a cliff on that lake.

It was a “freak accident” police said with no alcohol involved.

Police dealt with a few more mischief and noise complaints than usual Const. Negus said with six mischief charges and 10 noise complaints.

While noise complaints are technically a bylaw issue police are often called in the off-hours.

“The big issue is on the weekends sometimes bylaw is not reachable or responding so people get frustrated and they call us and we go and politely ask people to turn it down” Negus said.

Of the 11 collisions handled that week four involved animals three had personal injuries.
