MOUNT OLIVE, N.J. | Investigators probe cause of school bus crash that killed 2
MOUNT OLIVE, N.J. — First, a scraping sound. Then, chaos and panic as a bus taking a group of fifth-graders on a field trip collided with a dump truck and toppled over on a busy highway, killing a student and a teacher and injuring dozens of others.
First responders arrived in minutes to find students and adults strewn across the highway and median, with others still inside the bus.
“It was a rough scene to see,” Jeff Paul, director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management, said.
