Six students on a giant bus... Seems like a bit of a waste.

Maybe they should color those busses so they stand out a little more... Oh, they do? Maybe add some bright flashing lights then.

Nobody wants to take the short bus, Billy.

Why is the bus in the ditch?

That's a good question Billy.

Not sure if the two were connected. Got sent the photos. Asked the district about accidents, plural. And got the info above from a District 833 official and the Cottage Grove PD.

that could be a dangerous accident if speeds were higher. This is the reason why the current buses are flawed. The design poses a huge threat to lower, smaller cars. There's a reason why rear-engined buses are popular...
