The Freeport Fire Department was dispatched to a bus-versus-building call at the Moxey Rigby apartment building on East Merrick Road. Fire department units were met with a small school bus that attempted to drive through the ground level parking area but was too high. The bus caused minor damage to the building and firefighters ensured the affected area was secure before turning the scene over to building management. Seven people refused medical attention including the bus driver and children on the bus. All fire department units were under the command of Freeport Chief of Department Johnson.
