Police expect to finish report on bus accident next week

The bus is parked on Memorial Drive.

Hollister Police Chief David Westrick indicated Thursday that investigators expect to finish the report next week regarding a July 27 fatal bus crash resulting in the death of an 11-year-old boy.
Police investigators are following up after the accident last Monday at Memorial Drive and Verdun Avenue. A bus with the County Express transit service struck bicyclist Joshua Rodriguez at the intersection, and the boy was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
Police have yet to comment on a narrative of what may have occurred at the scene, whether they believe any negligence was involved or if the boy was wearing a helmet. It is also unclear how many people may have witnessed the accident.
Westrick responded to a Thursday email with questions on the investigation’s status by noting how he had talked to investigators and they expect to have a report completed by “midweek” of next week.
