Indeed; police say one of the bus drivers, 39-year-old Sheborah Kamarra, has been charged with failure to control speed to avoid a collision

Something really "off" with that crash.
First the school bus rear ends a Mustang then travels a good 1/4 mile and then hits the MTA bus head on. And no skid marks from school bus.

Maybe cruise control or the throttle control was set or something?

I agree- when I looked at it something sure didn't seem right.

since the aide on the skoolie survived they may be able to find out what happened to it... it also doesnt say whether the school bus driver stayed in the deat or not.. or why it hit the stang.. but if the driver seatbelt was off and then they hit the stang.. or perhaps hit a bump and bounced right out of the air seat.. (theres a video of a driver bouncing out of an air seat on youtube)... and had no abilities to operate the brakes this couldve easily happened.. or of course a medical where the driver had a seizure and stomped the go pedal...

Baltimore police spokesman said the school bus was traveling east on Frederick Avenue when it struck a Ford Mustang, hit a pillar at a cemetery, continued east onto oncoming traffic and struck the MTA bus.The fatalities included five from the MTA bus along with the school bus driver.

Medical conditions: sort of seizure would likely be behind, they say
