Driver and kids treated and released from hospital!
This is amazing even for a school bus:

Incredible that there were no serious injuries given the force of that impact.

Very curious about those brakes on that truck. Would think that the trucker should have been on the brakes already for 30 seconds or more to come to a standstill. Curious if he was on the horn for the last 20 sec to warn all for the danger coming.

Nice that the kids got released.
