the reason for the wreck and the bus not seeing it was because a small airplane had crashed into a field near the rad and everyone was looking at it.
I bet the bus driver never saw the cars because she was looking at the plane crash.
it was an elderly lady so it is not a big loss bemuse she only had a few years left anyway.
YOU PIECE OF TRASH

WATE says the woman got out of her vehicle when the bus hit her. The woman was involved in an accident, and the bus hit her after she got out of the car (presumably to talk to the other driver). No charges have been filed against the bus driver. How come this is? Of course it is mandatory to do an alcohol and drug screening, however how in the world did this happen to begin with? SHouldn't the bus driver be reprimanded somehow? Had it been anyone else they would have been charged. I guess if you transport our children, don't pay attention to what is in front of you and kill someone,you get off. However if you are some unfortunate soul who hits someone that jumps out in front of you, pulls out in front of you or hits you and they die, you get arrested.

A grandmother dropping her grandkids off at school Monday morning was killed when she was hit by a school bus.

According to Major Michelle Jones with the Morristown Police Department, the accident happened just before 8:00 am at Meadowview Middle School on Meadowview Drive in Morristown.

Jones says Sandra Akers was dropping two grandkids off at the school when her Toyota Camry was rear-ended by a Honda Civic driven by Ritchard Coffey, 19, who was also dropping off a child. When Akers got out of the car to speak with Coffey, a school bus ran into both cars and Akers, killing her.

The bus driver is being tested for drug and alcohol, which is standard procedure in a fatal accident. At this point, investigators believe this was just a tragic accident. Jones says the glare of the sun may have temporarily blinded the driver as the bus came up a hill towards the two cars.

The kids on the school bus were taken to the school where they met with a Morristown Police Department chaplain.

I was the first person who posted the accident and the person who told me saw it happen. I was just trying to help anyone who might need to know what had happened as best I could. These people who use these circumstances to make jokes should be banned from the forum.

Sun or no sun the driver of the bus should have used more caution. She will now be charged with vehicular homicide. It is sad but if you cant see 2 cars in the middle of the road you shouldnt be driving at a speed that would knock 2 cars into and kill someone.

SHe isnt being charged, thus far. I do feel tho, had it been anyone else other than someone entrusted to drive safely to get our children back and forth that then and only then, there would have been an arrest made.

What kind of Monster are you? Do you have a mother or father, we will all get old one day if we are lucky. This is a tragedy, & some one like you gets on here & shows how stupid they are. Hopefully you dont have children, brothers or sisters, the trauma those involved must be going through. I really think you are some young inmature CHILD that hasnt been taught right from wrong. Can you imagine what kind of people would have spawned such a IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!

It was going fast enough to knock another car into/over a lady and kill her.....Thats to fast.....If she couldnt see then she should have been going slower. What if it was kids in the road walking? would she have just ran over them? IF YOU CANT SEE THEN YOU DRIVE VERY SLOW AND BE MORE CAREFUL.And yes she will be charged as she should be,it was her fault. dumbass!...Maybe if it was a kid of yours you would see the light,not the sun.

I drove over there an hour ago. The pic in the paper shows the bus had to have been going up that LITTLE slope. How ridiculous that someone else may be charged when this is the fault of the bus driver. People trust these drivers to transport kids safely, to watch in front of them and be cautious. Evidently this driver was not. She plowed into 2 vehicles and a woman. The speed limit there is 15 miles per hour on that road at all times, let alone during school traffic hours. If the young man gets charged, something is seriously wrong with our system. Tina needs to be charged...

Just to let you know Jon that was a relative of mine and I do not appreciate you saying she did not have long to live that is not up to you to decide it is up to God. Just because she was not important to you and did not mean anything to you does not mean that she was not important to her family and her granddaughters who watched it. If you do not have anything good to say you should stay off of topix, especially if you do not even know who you are talking about.

Yes its a bus and its big,thats why you use more caution when driving it. Not to mention that you have kids on it that you are responsable for."Love a know it all that knows nothing!" this must be talking about you because i understand that driving a commercial vehicle includes responsibility,something this driver did not have. she put lots of lifes in danger with her driving. Im sure that the schools will get sued over her and she will no longer drive a bus.Jail would be getting off easy for her. Think about the family that no longer has a mother/grandmother/wife/daught er any more because of her. Oh and dont forget the kids that have to live with being on a bus that killed a person,they will remeamber that for a life time. WHEN YOU HAVE A JOB THAT PUTS PEOPLES LIFE IN YOUR HANDS YOU TAKE CAUTION AND IF THE SUN IS IN YOUR EYES AND YOU CANT SEE THEN YOU STOP NOT KEEP GOING. It takes alot of force to knock a car into someone and kill them,not just a 5 mph crash and i dont care how BIG the bus is.
