Three students and a bus driver were injured in a crash involving a Seminole County school bus last Tuesday.
WESH.com reports that the crash occurred at State Road 426 and State Road 46 when a landscaping truck allegedly failed to make a right turn while traveling in a right turning lane. This set off a chain reaction in which the landscaping truck careened left, striking the school bus causing a pickup to also collide with the bus.
