How many of you remember, on August the 5th, the bus crash that killed two people and injured band students on both buses? The news reported the 2 buses, with high school band students, were going to an amusement park when they slammed into a freeway wreck that happened right in front of them, crushing a pickup truck and killing its driver and one of the students.


This wreck near Gray Summit, about 40 miles west of St. Louis, happened when a pickup truck rear-ended a semi cab that had slowed down because it was nearing a construction zone, state police said. The first bus, which was carrying female band members from John F. Hodge High in St. James, slammed into the back of the pickup, and then was launched on top of it after it was rear-ended by the second bus.


Highway Patrol Cpl. Jeff Wilson said the driver of the first bus moved into the passing lane to give a distressed vehicle in the shoulder more room. She was checking her rearview mirror while returning to the right-hand lane when she noticed the first impact but could not stop in time, hitting the pickup. The second bus then rear-ended the first, vaulting the first bus onto the top of the pickup, which was crushed.


Wilson said it was too soon to say if any of the drivers would face charges.

Now I haven’t heard anymore about this tragedy, but I would like for us to listen again to what was recorded from the officer “the first bus moved into the passing lane to give a distressed vehicle in the shoulder more room. She was checking her rearview mirror while returning to the right-hand lane when she noticed the first impact but could not stop in time, hitting the pickup.”

Have you ever done something you believed to be exactly correct and then have someone question your ability or maybe the authority or accuracy of your decisions? You’ve done everything by the book and yet people still question if you could have done more?
