Collision Between Wisconsin School and City Bus Caught on Security Camera

A Wisconsin city bus and a school bus collided on Wednesday afternoon, with both drivers suffering serious injuries, reported Fox News.

The incident at the intersection of Goold and Shoop streets in Racine, Wisconin, was recorded by a home security camera. The two vehicles are shown entering the same intersection from different directions and without stopping, when they collided with one another.

The city bus struck the loading door side of the school bus, and the school bus ended up on its side.

Police stated that only the school bus driver and an assistant were on the bus at the time of the crash. No students from Racine Unified School District were on board at the time of the incident.

According to the article, it is believed approximately seven to eight passengers were on board the city bus. Some of them were treated for minor injuries.

Fight for Life was reportedly called to the scene, but it is not clear if either of the bus drivers, who suffered the worst injuries, were taken to the hospital.

The cause of the crash reportedly remains under investigation. However, neighbors who live near the intersection said the crash was likely caused by a stop sign that is obstructed by a tree.
