    A truck slammed into another truck. My brother was going by at the time of the crash and saw it… My niece was one of the kids on the bus, thankfully nor hurt… But the windshield of the first truck was into the bus… It was cold enough for black ice, but for such an impact to happen, the other driver was going way to fast and not paying attention… I hope both drivers are fine and the rest of the kids are ok
