NOW they say it involved a school bus. No news should be posted on any website until the writer or company has ALL of the facts. Otherwise you're just another chicken little.

School districts, to save money, will often transport special education students to other school schools. This saces money in the long run. Instead of every school having to have a specialized classroom for just one or two students, the schools can share the cost of having just one classroom for all the students with a particular disability.

That intersection is terrible!!! I go that way every day on my way to/from work. There was an accident there yesterday at noon, and now this one today! It's about time someone does a traffic study!!! There is a day care center right there. It's sad, but I guess it's going to take an accident involving one of the little kids before something is done.

They also are required to bus non-public students in their district to their respective schools. They don't do it just for special ed students.

Seat belt.....Were they in this bus.

I wrote a letter about 6 months to my congressman and have not heard a word. Guess they are backed up.

If seatbealts are mandatory in these buses, Public and private, I do believe

It's terrible because
1-traffic using Race st disregard the "red" signal.

2-Traffic using 14th street pulls out on green without looking first to see if it's safe to do so.

You are not allowed to go on "green" unless it's safe to do so.
