A Central New York school bus was wrecked by a pickup truck in an early morning crash that has left one in critical condition.
New York State Police say it happened just after 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning (March 22) involving a Mexico Academy Central School District bus. At the time of the accident, there were no children on board, police said, but a bus monitor - Theresa Steele, 63 - suffered severe head injuries and is hospitalized in critical condition.
Troopers believe the bus ran a stop sign at the intersection of County Route 1 and County Route 6 in the Oswego County town of New Haven.

The pickup driver, 45-year-old Jonathan Duval of Mexico, NY, was treated and released at the hospital.
