Some Friday Afternoon Excitement

Maisey had some friends come home with her after school today for a play date. The girls' moms were coming around 3:30 to pick them up. I was kind of watching out the window and saw a motorcycle cop at the end of our cul-de-sac and saw my neighbor outside so I went out to see what was going on.

This is what I saw!

A mustang, driven by an 18 year old kid, was speeding through the neighborhood and hit a school bus with 40 kids on board! 

This was the car, OUCH! Air bags deployed and all!

So once the girls' moms came (they had to park down the street and walk to our house to get them), we walked down to the corner and watched the scene unfold. . . for 2 hours!

Gage's favorite part was the giant tow truck (used to tow the bus away!)

And the news helicopters

The news is reporting 6 students with injuries, one which was transported to the hospital. I only saw 4 girls sitting on the curb while all of the other kids stayed on the bus. One of the girls on the curb is a student at Maisey's school. The second grade teacher and the intervention specialist came to be with her until her family could get there.

By Gage's request, we stayed until the bus got towed away.

Then we had news crews on our street through the evening.

This is a picture of about half the length of the skid marks. The news reported they were 100 ft. long. He must have been going F.A.S.T.!!!

That was our crazy Friday afternoon!
