In an unusual multi-vehicle crash, 54 kids were involved in a crash earlier this month in Amite County, Mississippi. Police officials say the wreck happened around 3:30 p.m. after school had let out for the day.
A packed school bus was heading down Mississippi 24 near Plymouth Church Road when it came to a stop to yield to oncoming traffic. A 2008 Dodge pickup truck was heading east along the highway when another Dodge truck tried to cross the highway, failing to yield. The eastbound Dodge then collided into the other truck, pushing both vehicles into the left side of the stopped school bus.
Police say that the drivers of all three vehicles and the 54 children were taken to a local hospital for treatment. The children thankfully escaped largely unharmed, while the driver of one of the Dodge trucks needed to be taken to the hospital by ambulance for his injuries.
