Mysterious object shatters school bus window with children inside


LITCHFIELD - Police are trying to figure out what object shattered the window of a school bus that was transporting a dozen middle school students.

Police said the bus was driving on Colby Road around 2:15 Tuesday when something hit the window, sending glass into the bus.

"They were just driving along and getting ready to do the next stop, and that’s when they looked back and the glass was flying," said Heather Lacroix, whose son was on the bus.

One student had a minor injury after being scratched by glass. Police said the bus driver stopped immediately and called a supervisor. A second bus picked the students up and brought them home. Wednesday, the school asked all students to provide a written statement, while police combed surveillance.

Police described the hole in the window to be about the size of a quarter and said the forensics of how the glass broke assures them that the object came from outside the bus.

"We had two officers actually search the bus on their hands and knees," said Chief Joseph O'Brion.

Officers also checked the road, but still it remains a mystery.

Police said it is unclear whether the incident was intentional.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Litchfield Police.
