I doubt the trucker stopped, given the debris paths and where the two vehicles ended up. If the sun was in the trucker's eyes, as I said before, he likely did not only not see the bus, he did not see the STOP sign. As stated, it will be investigated and the truth will come out.

over $7.2 million raised for these boys!! i'm really at a loss for words..... all I can say is i'm so grateful to live in such a strong, humble, & supportive country!

Tim Horton's is also selling Green & Yellow Sprinkle Donuts (those are the team colours) & donating 100% of proceeds to the cause!

So...looks like one account for each death, one account for each injury. I haven't looked back at this in some time...but looks like the guy had 2 weeks of training, and two weeks on the job by himself. Not a very experienced driver.

Sounds like most of the other trucking accidents I've read about in the news lately. It seems as if they're handing out AZ licenses in cereal boxes these days
