Another school bus wrecked - this time in Floyd County this afternoon.
(++++++++++) [take accident map fs]
Police say the school bus bus was pulling onto Route 221 from Check Elementary School when it was hit head- on by a Dodge Neon.
Officials say the Neon's driver- 23 year old Clifton Baxter - was slowing down as he entered the school zone and hit a patch of oil on road and skidded across.
Baxter was air lifted to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.
Police aren't sure how the oil got on the road, but say it covered both lanes for about 50 yards, and the slick conditions were made worse by light rain.
