The preliminary information is that the tour bus was traveling north. The driver lost control of the bus which drifted off the left side of the roadway. The bus driver overcorrected to the right, which caused the bus to travel across the northbound travel lanes, then off the roadway to the right, onto the dirt shoulder.

I know someone who drove a bus and she said the kids would use belts as weapons. I guess there would be ways to make the belts so they cannot be flogged around. Has anyone proposed a new type of belt?

Here is what we are hearing. The preliminary information is that the tour bus was traveling north. The driver lost control of the bus which drifted off the left side of the roadway. The bus driver overcorrected to the right, which caused the bus to travel across the northbound travel lanes, then off the roadway to the right, onto the dirt shoulder.

At that point, the driver over-corrected again and the bus traveled back across the northbound lanes into the depressed center median where it proceeded onto the southbound travel lanes where it rolled over and came to rest.
