At least it gave those kids something interesting to talk about during lunch... or during class, if they are so inclined.

I hope this "man" will be ok....This why we call them accident! Some of you that post here are very heartless and rude. Are you that perfect? Prayers for this mans recovery and glad the kids on that bus weren't hurt. Wear your seatbelt!

I love the fact that the phone number is plastered on the side of the pick up. I bet that company gets a few calls today...."hows my driving?"

Always be prepared to stop !!! Those buses stop when you least expect it, and we should not follow so close. You never know what the person in front of you is going to do, but we know these buses stop!
Hope all will be OK. Accidents are always unexpected, we can be thankful we have the Aero Meds.

they send aero med when it looks to be bad... they cant always tell if its life threatening or not based on the impact, and if they wait to know for sure...

Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for the students on the bus. Crashes happen when you least expect it and maybe the students will realize it could happen to them in a moment of inattention. I just hope all three individuals will be OK.

Aero med was called as it was an entrapment (pin in)
when we roll on an accident with pin in aero med is called until your on scene you dont know what you will find!

Ionia hospital is horrid. I was in disbelief when I went with my sister to have her baby a few years back. omg there were ants everywhere & the bathrooms in the patients rooms were disgusting & hadn't had a good cleaning in a long time. There is no way in heck I would ever want to be treated there.
Its also doesn't make you feel very safe when every other room has a prisoner in it from the prison

I guess I don't understand why Aero Med was really even called, 1st responders know if it's a code 1..2..or 3 so now this man or his insurance company will have this big bill for something uncalled for.

Yea I have learned if you want to live and actually get GOOD treatment you don't ever go to Carson City or Ionia hospitals! Go to Spectrum Health in Greenville or GR!

I would not take a dead animal to Ionia Hospital. They have bugs, etc crawling everywhere. The emergency room is dirty. I was really not impressed the times that I have been forced to go there with others.
