According to a witness who saw the accident happen, the big rig driver ignored traffic that was stopped on the highway and lost control before hitting the bus. The 18-wheeler crashed down onto the access road. As a result, a HAZMAT team had to clean up the fuel spill.

The assistant superintendent of the district where the students were from said that none of the kids were seriously injured, just scared and shaken up.
