A motorcyclist died after crashing into a school bus in Lexington Tuesday afternoon.
Some witnesses said the motorcyclist had been driving erratically before he hit the back of an inbound school bus on North Broadway near New Circle Road at about 3:30 p.m., said Lexington police Lt. Scott May.
The Fayette County coroner’s office said David L. Bradshaw III, 30, was pronounced dead as a result of multiple blunt force trauma in the emergency room at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital at 4:12 p.m.
A 16-year-old student from the Audrey Grevious Center, formerly known as the Lexington Day Treatment Center, as well as an aide and the bus driver, were aboard the city’s school bus, Lexington spokeswoman Susan Straub said. She said they were not injured.
