In Perry County, PA a school bus crashed. The bus driver was attempting to avoid a collision with a large truck, which crossed the opposing lane of travel into the bus's lane. The bus was carrying almost 40 students from the local schools. Over a quarter of the students were taken to the hospital for minor injuries. The truck driver was cited for operation of vehicle without certificate of inspection, as well as driving on roadways laned for traffic. Obviously, we hope that accidents like this never happen, but luckily all of the children seem to be generally okay!
