JACKSON, Miss. Fog may have been a factor when a school bus and a tractor-trailer collided on a rural Mississippi highway Friday, killing a 10-year-old girl and injuring at least 10 people, authorities said.
Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Jon Kalahar said the accident happened about 7:20 a.m. He said it appears that the bus had stopped at a stop sign on Mississippi Highway 450 and was turning on to U.S. Highway 61 when it pulled in front of the truck.
Kalahar said the truck driver told investigators he saw the bus and hit the brakes, but couldn't stop in time. Kalahar said the preliminary investigation showed it was foggy at the time and that may have contributed to the crash.
Murry Roark, Bolivar County's deputy coroner, said the student who died was a 10-year-old girl.
Her name is Taliyah McRoy, according to T.L. Redmon Funeral Home in Cleveland.
May Taliyah RIP and may the Lord comfort her family and friends, in Jesus' Name, amen!
It was a different link - But it's seems very bad - there's a picture of both the bus and tractor trailer overturned...
So awful... Seems like fog played a role but I feel so bad for that bus driver. :no:
ETA: Both drivers, really, but especially the bus driver it's s/he is seemed at fault.
So tragic I hope the rest of the children make a full and speedy recovery!!!
And seatbelts on busses is not a bad idea......
This is so horrifying. You put your child on the bus to go to school...and then they are gone.
Prayers for all of the families and both drivers. This is so sad.
