Police: Driver hit deer before colliding with school bus

Posted: Updated:

An update on that fatal accident Monday morning on the beltline in Burlington.

Gregory Burt, 56, of Colchester, was killed when his car collided with a school bus.

Police now say they have determined that Burt hit a deer just prior to the crash which caused him to lose control and veer into the path of the bus. Police say the icy conditions at the time may also have contributed to an inability to regain control after striking the deer.

Burlington police are asking anyone who may have found an injured or dead deer in the city or Colchester to contact them.
