I was in the tour bus, and I saw the school buses flying by, they were driving way too fast, following too close. What a shame. It is too bad that people have to die because of driver error. There is no reason to be going faster than 70 when traffic is so hectic. My thoughts were, they passed me standing still, and you see what happens when speeding and following too close happens, and the poor young man who just ran into the semi, you know he didn't deserve to die, I thank God that there was not a trailer on that semi, the whole bus would have been killed, and the second bus would have been really really bad. Slow down, hire drivers that their main focus is safety, who cares about saving those couple of minutes to get to six flags, I guarantee you that the parents of the student and the young man wish you would have increased your following distance, slow down please. God Bless all affected.

also to mention, when accident reconstruction figures how fast they were going, they will also realize they didn't even hit the brakes, if the speed limit says 60 you might want to go a little slower in traffic you are not consistant at....slow down, increase your following distance, in distress, put your flashers on, if you see lots of red taillights, please put on flashers, so the other folks that are behind you have a chance to slow down so they dont bash into you, so they can get off their cell phone and pay attention.
