A bus was carrying nearly 47 people when a tractor trailer, going in the opposite direction, lost the tread on its left front tire and veered across a median, smashing into the bus, police said.
Along with the eleven killed, 23 people were injured, including five young children.
The crash forced a 29-year old woman to give birth two months early.
Her husband said, he was knocked out during the crash but was able to regain consciousness.
“It was kind of like being in an apocalyptic movie. It was like the world was ending. It wasn’t just happening to me,” he said.
Her husband said, he got his daughter off the bus before going back to carry his 29-year-old wife.
FHP refused to release the names of the other victims hurt in the crash, as investigations are still ongoing.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities.
