tore that bus up pretty good... wonder if the light was yellow... I know in Ohio even if the light is yellow you cant turn left in front of a vehicle.. you can sit in the intersection till the light is red and all the traffic stops dead if you so choose.. you then have the right of way to clear the intersection on a left turn... im assuming its same in FL?

seems hard to not see a bright yellow school bus coming toward you...

If the light was on yellow it would appear the bus was not slowing down to stop for the up coming red.

if the light was on yellow and you are past that mental point, you just go.. in a 26K+ bus you slam on the brakes and you end up sideways... I have no idea the intersection though i know the area.. a lot of 45 MPH speeds down there..
