BROOKSVILLE – A Brooksville man was airlifted to the Bayonet Point Medical Center after colliding with a Hernando County school bus early Tuesday morning.

It was just after 6:00 am when Willamena Parrot Bates had just picked up her first student and was driving away from the stop at Mondon Hill Road and Weatherly Road when a 1992 Saturn came up behind her at a much faster speed.

The driver of the Saturn did not slow down or stop as it came up on the bus and collided into the rear of the bus according to Florida Highway Patrol.
