Trucker Swerves Off The Road Intentionally To Avoid Hitting School Bus

A logging truck driver intentionally crashed his rig in Mississippi this morning in order to avoid hitting a school bus full of students.

The crash happened just after 7 a.m. on Mississippi 28 in Copiah County.

According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the truck driver traveling east came over a hill and saw a school bus stopped in the road to pick up students.

Unable to brake in time, the driver said that he turned the wheel and swerved to avoid rear ending the school bus.

The truck overturned and spilled some logs, but the truck driver wasn’t hurt.

The driver told police that he didn’t want to hit the bus because children could be hurt in the crash.
