Multiple deaths after school bus collides with dump truck in New Jersey

We will remind, in the USA state of new Jersey the school bus was carrying children on a tour, and dump truck collided on a country road, as a result, the bus overturned on the roof and received significant damage.

One student, speaking outside Morristown Medical Center, described a truck hitting from behind before the bus flipped.

Dozens of people from the bus and the truck driver have been hospitalized.

Authorities have not yet provided other details about the crash.

"A lot of people (inside the bus) were screaming and they were like, hanging from their seat belts", he added.

"We are devastated by today's event", Paramus public school superintendent Michele Robinson told a news conference.

He said the out-of-service rate "speaks volumes as to the adequacy of their safety management program". Its trucks have been in seven crashes in the last two years, none of them fatal, according to FMCSA.

Of those killed, 68 were passengers - including 58 school-age children - and 50 were drivers.
