ROY — A Roy woman is in the hospital with minor injuries after driving her car into a school bus while trying to use her cellphone.
The accident happened just before 8 a.m. at 3550 West and 5500 South, an unincorporated area of Weber County near Roy. The school bus was parked on the side of the road and was unoccupied, according to Lt. John Morrow with the Weber County Sheriff's Office.
Ashley Quintana, 23, was transported to the hospital with head, neck, face and back injuries, according to Morrow. The lieutenant said he was unsure of the seriousness of Quintana's injuries, but that she was conscious, breathing and alert when an ambulance arrived at the scene.
"There were no passengers, luckily," he said.
Quintana was trying to dial a phone number when she hit the side of the bus. It was unknown Wednesday morning how fast she was going, but the speed limit on the road is 25 mph, and it is believed she was going much faster.
"The impact was severe enough that it pushed the bus forward a foot," Morrow said.
Citations against Quintana are pending.
