For the word challenged.....

"Bus" means the driver and "failed" means did not.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

You would have thought that one of those trucks would have stepped up before the bus picked up steam. Dangerous situation there . . damn bus committed suicide.

Every trucker I personally know (not too many) would have avoided ANY accident because everything shows up on their record, and it may cause them to lose their ability to drive.

A good friend of mine hit a deer in is personal vehicle, and during the same year 2 people hit his 18 wheeler (neither were his fault and their insurance companies paid). He was suspended from driving for 8 months and given the option of working on the loading doc or getting paid training for forklift. They ended up cutting his hours to where he was no longer full time, so he left that company. He and no other infractions, and was in very good standing. This is with one of the major companies with no driver's union.

This is the world we live in.

For that video, thank God for Jersey barriers, that could have continued to be a major problem if it didn't stop the bus.
