A bus driver will likely be brought up on charges after crashing her bus full of students on the afternoon of September 15, according to local sources. Tennessee emergency responders came to the scene of the accident around 3 p.m. to discover injured children on board the bus. So far, however, the driver has not been formally charged with a crime.
According to students aboard the bus, the driver crossed the center line and sideswiped a tractor-trailer headed in the other direction. The force of the impact shattered windows throughout the bus and removed part of the side of the vehicle, forcing the bus off the road. When the bus came to rest, students escaped out the rear of the vehicle.
