A Guymon Public Schools bus driver is in stable condition today after the bus he was driving was involved in a rollover accident on Monday afternoon.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Jim Wesley Proctor, 79, was driving a 2003 Freightliner school bus northbound on State Highway 136 about two miles south of Guymon when he swerved off the right side of the highway for an unknown reason, crossed the highway to the left, struck an embankment and overturned one-quarter time.
The bus came to rest on its passenger side in a ditch.
Guymon School Superintendent Doug Melton said that Proctor had dropped off his last load of students and was returning to Guymon when the accident took place, so no students were on the bus at the time of the incident.
Guymon EMS and Fire, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Texas County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene.
