No one was injured after a Neshoba Central School bus carrying football players veered off the street and struck a SUV parked on Beacon Street, Friday afternoon.
The driver of the bus, Charles Patch, 69, was traveling west on Beacon Street when he "started feeling like he was passing out," the police report said.
The bus veered off the street, striking the rear end of a Chevrolet Tahoe parked near the intersection of Center Avenue. Patch was taken to the county hospital initially by ambulance.
He was later transferred to Anderson Hospital in Meridian.
Patch is in stable condition, a granddaughter said Tuesday.
He has serious health problems that caused this accident, the granddaughter said on the Democrat's Facebook page, health problems that have occurred unexpectedly and were out of his control.
The bus damaged the rear end of the Tahoe and pushed the vehicle into the raised curb, the report said. The glass door of the bus was also shattered.
