A silver Toyota Camry, driven by a 54-year-old Los Alamos woman, allegedly pulled out in front of an out-of-service Atomic City Transit bus, driven by a 24-year-old Los Alamos man, at the corner of Trinity Drive and Central Avenue around noon Friday.


The woman’s vehicle was sustained heavy front damage. There was slight damage to the right front of the bus.

Police said there were no injuries. The woman driving the Camry was cited. The bus driver was not, according to police.

The driver of the bus said the vehicle pulled out in front him and he said he swerved to try and avoid the crash.

“I am just glad she wasn’t hurt,” the bus driver said.

The westbound lane of Trinity Drive was closed for about 45 minutes as police investigated.

It was not known if charges would be filed and police said a report would not be available until next week.

There also was a minor accident at the corner of Diamond Drive and Orange Street around noon but there were no injuries.
