2 killed in rear end collision with school bus

This happened about a mile from my house yesterday. Tragic story of 2 teenagers (bother & sister) on their way home from school, rear ended a school at speed - both died instantly.

Everyone in town is talking about it, and many ask why isn't there an under-ride collision style bumper on the rear of school bus's? My only thought would be, because of the long overhang of the rear end - the bus would get hung up exiting driveways & such. I always wonderd/worried about this when I had my schoolie...

A tragic, but quick death. The mom and dad are the ones who suffer.

Stupid driver error, but if I counted the times that I should have died due to my stupid driving errors, especially when young; well, I'd be dead now many times.
