A school bus was involved in an accident with a dump truck on a rural road in Pennsylvania on Oct. 20. Eight individuals were injured in the two-vehicle collision in Paradise Township.
The accident happened as the bus drove eastbound on Route 741 in the area of South Vintage Road. Pennsylvania authorities have reported that at approximately 8:25 a.m., a dump truck rolled through a stop sign and onto Route 741, directly in the pathway of the moving bus. The driver of the bus attempted to steer around the dump truck, but the truck continued to move forward and struck the school bus, causing the entire bus to flip on its side. Bystanders that had witnessed the accident worked together to rescue the children and others that were trapped in the wreck.
