Hazleton Hosts Fun Day For I-81 Bus Victims
Some serious business often goes down here at Hazleton City Hall. But today, it’s a playground for the nearby YMCA. Hazleton Chief of Police Frank De Andrea hosted a day of fun there for the victims of the I-81 bus accident.
He called around the community, asking who could help give the children a special day. He had some of his police force display their eqiptment.
A local pizza joint donated lunch for the children, and the fire department showed off their trucks to them.
But for these kids, it’s all about moving on. Little 8-year-old Zoe Pesco remembers exactly how the impact of the crash felt.
Chief DeAndrea was also able to plan a special day for the childen to the JFK Pool in Pottsville, where the bus was heading before the accident. A local law firm, HGSK, is funding the trip.
