(Aug. 9, 2019) Police arrested Jesse William Kramer, 39, of Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, after he was accused of crashing his vehicle into a bus and injuring four people.
According to documents filed in District Court, a bus was leaving a stop at 67th Street last Saturday when Kramer shifted lanes and attempted to make a right turn.
Instead, he crashed his GMC Sierra into the bus, and he fled the scene the police report said.
According to the report, four people were injured as a result of the collision, and one was transported to Atlantic General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police found Kramer parked in the District Court parking lot, and the bus driver identified him as the suspect.
During an initial investigation, an officer found that Kramer’s driver’s license had been suspended.
Kramer claimed to have assumed his license was valid after he had fought a speeding ticket in court.
Police said that Kramer initially denied being involved with the crash, but eventually told police that he may have been involved in the crash, but thought no there were any damages so he did not stop.
Kramer faces multiple charges, including driving a vehicle on a suspended license, failure to stop at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, failure of driver to furnish identification, negligent driving and unsafe lane changing.
