Arrest made in Cheshire school bus crash


CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH)- A man is facing charges after a multi-car accident in Cheshire involving a school bus.

It happened July 16 just before 3 in the afternoon.

Police say 31-year-old Michael Kilday was driving a pick-up truck with a trailer attached, loaded with landscaping equipment. Police say Kilday wasn’t able to stop for traffic, so he swerved and hit a car, which then hit the school bus.

The school bus was carrying campers from New Haven.
