    Looks like the bus made a left/u-turn from the right lane cutting off the truck. I have seen this happen many times by Martz bus drivers.

    Bus driver was at fault

    I can see where the bus is at fault. My question here is. Why ? It’s not like the bus is fast and darted out in front of the truck. Couldn’t it ben seen by the truck before the collision ? I mean, It’s a big ass bus. Can be seen a good ways off. The truck could be at fault also. Failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision. Two wrongs does not make it right.

    Buses that are capable of holding a large capacity of people should be banned!
