A witness told us she saw the young passengers on the bus tossed around on impact.

"When I came up, I (saw) her crying and she was just like, 'My brakes went out.  My brakes went out.'  And so she started calling somebody on her phone.  The kids that started jumping out of the bus, I (saw) the little boy with the bloody mouth, so I chased him down," said Danyell Rippy.
