LAKEWOOD, New Jersey — Authorities have released the name of a woman who was killed when her car and a school bus carrying 10 children collided in southern New Jersey.
Ocean County prosecutors say Carol Boccadutre was pronounced dead at a hospital Friday night, not long after the accident occurred in Lakewood. They say the 76-year-old Jackson woman was trying to make a left turn from a restaurant parking lot when the accident occurred around 3:30 p.m.
Seven children who were riding on the bus were treated at a hospital for minor injuries, while three others were released to their parents at the accident scene.
The bus driver, 58-year-old Toms River resident Albert Burd, declined medical attention.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
