CHESTER Three men who were travelling on a Chester County highway are dead after authorities say their car ran off the road, hit a tree and then sent debris flying at a nearby school bus Monday morning.

Crews were called to the crash on Old Richburg Road near Lizzie Melton Road at about 11:40 a.m. Monday when a 1999 Volkswagen headed west ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree, said Lance Cpl. Billy Elder with the Highway Patrol.

A Lewisville Elementary School bus was traveling east on the road when it was hit by debris, Elder said.

Chester schools spokeswoman Brooke Clinton said only two kindergartners from Lewisville Elementary School were on the bus, along with the driver, Margaret Turner, 56, of Fort Lawn.

The children, whose ages were not available, and Turner were all in good condition after they were escorted off the bus by the school's resource officer, Clinton said. The school's pre-kindergarten program usually dismisses around 11 a.m. each day, she said.

Lizzie Melton Road is about two miles from the school.

The driver, a man, and his two passengers were all pronounced dead at the scene, Elder said. Their identities were not immediately available.

Clinton said the victims were not students in the school district.

Check back later for more details on this developing story.
