Kody N. Trask

A Purcellville man was arrested after a hit-and-run crash on Route 9 that involved a Loudoun County Public Schools bus, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. The Aug. 23 incident came on the second day of school for students.

Kody N. Trask, 30, allegedly pulled out from a business near Hillsboro Road around 3:09 p.m. and struck the front end of the westbound school bus before striking an eastbound vehicle and fleeing the scene.

Ten students were on the bus at the time of the incident, one of whom received minor injuries and was picked up by a family member. The bus driver also received minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Trask was later located at his residence and taken into custody without incident. He was charged with DUI — his second offense in five years — and felony hit-and-run. He was being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond last weekend.

An Oct. 16 hearing has been set for Loudoun County General District Court.

The involved area of Route 9 was closed for around two hours following the incident. LCPS officials said another school bus was brought to the scene and used to transport students home safely.

Another comment cop, LoudounSucks, makes an arrest. LOL


amerigirl

County, you make no sense, how is it policing? At least I’m not being judgmental like you. If I want to comment on an article that is what free speech really is. But you would rather comment on me? Grow up. Why do you feel the need to answer for ‘I'm always right’ are you one of those people who thinks they are always right or do you think they can’t answer for themselves?


countyresident

Also, amerigirl, being judgemental is free speech! And you can ignore it but you don't! So you are being judgemental that it's not speech that's "good enough"! All humans are judgemental, and if you are implying that you never are/never will be/never would be that's pretty ridiculous. Grow up yourself or at least figure it out like in a logical way.


amerigirl

County, you seem to have a problem understanding. Of course, you can be judgmental, as you have here, and speak what you want. But this article is not about me, you or a wall. This is an online discussion about someone who was drinking and hit a school bus. This is not the correct forum to just start posting your political beliefs that have nothing to do with Kody Trask. Real good comeback, ‘grow up yourself’, coming from someone who can’t deal with another person asking why someone posted something that has nothing to do with the article. Where do I say anything about that it's not speech that's "good enough"? If you really feel the need to be so protective of someone to be [offtopic] I have just as much right to ask why that person is making that statement that has relevance to this thread.


amerigirl

You obviously do not understand how the comment section on an op-ed works. If you want to practice your free speech there is a section called the letters to the Editor where you can voice your opinion in the correct format. That is nothing more than common courtesy. I suggest you look at the Welcome to the discussion guidelines below. You are wasting my time and the time of the others that post here with this nonsense

3:00 p.m. and he's drinking in excess at a brewery or vineyard off Rt. 9. Who is surprised? I have come to realize (when picking activities for out of town guests) that breweries and vineyards are the number 1 thing to do in Loudoun. We are basically known for our beautiful views and alcohol!


I'm always right

We need a build a bigger wall. As soon as possible.


amerigirl

What does that have to do with this article?


countyresident

uh - free speech. What does YOUR comment have to do with the article? Please




amerigirl

Countyresident, seriously??? that's why they have this button you can use when posting [offtopic][offtopic][offtopic][offtopic][offtopic][offtopic][offtopic][offtopic][offtopic]


countyresident

LOL! I don't HAVE to use the button now, do I amerigirl? You going to make me some how? Free country free speech, right? RIGHT


CindyLou

good thing he wasn't an immigrant.


springerdad

CindyLou - I knew you would come though for me. Thanks for not letting me down.


Chris McHale

In all fairness, a school bus is very hard to spot.


LoudounSucks

Of course alcohol was involved. This is why I support mandatory background checks for all alcohol purchases.


amerigirl

I believe you all ready need an ID for that.


amerigirl

How can someone hit a school bus and not stop to make sure kids aren't injured? Where has empathy gone?


Stone3

He was drunk


Duncan Idaho

Trump’s influence on the coarsening of society.




countyresident

You are so right. Everything bad since the dawn of time is Trump's fault. LOL


RoundHillGuy

Agreed!


amerigirl

Are you guys victimizing yourselves when the article is about kids getting hurt on a school bus?


countyresident

amerigirl- you do love policing the comment section - feel better now?
