School bus torn apart in dump truck collision, killing 2

School bus torn apart in dump truck collision, killing 2

Gov. Phil Murphy stood with local officials Thursday to announce a student and a teacher from a Paramus school were killed in a horrific school bus crash involving a dump truck.

From 2014-2016 there were more than 5,000 crashes on Route 80 in Morris County, resulting in 10 deaths and almost 1,400 injuries, according to a News 4 I-Team analysis of state data.

Authorities say multiple people have been injured and hospitalized. State Police are investigating whether the school bus driver got separated from two other buses, missed his exit, then made an illegal U-turn moments before the bus was rear-ended by the dump truck.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 118 people on school buses were killed in crashes from 2007 to 2016, the previous year for which data is available.

Morristown Medical Centre spokeswoman Elaine Andrecovich said they have received some people from the accident, but she did not have a number available and could not say how many were children. She said they were being evaluated and treated, but she did not have ages or conditions. "A lot of people were injured".

The names of the teacher and student killed in the Interstate 80 crash were not released.

According to the school's calendar, a Grade 5 day trip to Waterloo Village in Stanhope was scheduled for today.

"The side of the bus says Paramus Board of Education, according to Mount Olive Township Mayor Rob Greenbaum". The truck was registered to Mendez Trucking, of Belleville.

They later learned their classmates had been in a crash.

The bus was one of three transporting fifth graders from East Brook Middle School in Paramus on the class trip. Mendez's rate was 37.9 percent, according to FMCSA.

The operator of the dump truck, Mendez Trucking, had 33 units that drive 1.9 million miles (3.1 million km) in total in 2017 and had been involved in seven crashes over the past two years, U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration records showed.

The impact was so severe, the top half of the bus completely tore away from its chassis and went hurtling into the metal barriers on the side of the highway with students inside.

Waterloo Village is a historic site depicting a Lenape Indian community and once-thriving port along the Morris Canal in north-western New Jersey.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 118 people on school buses were killed in crashes from 2007-2016, the a year ago for which data is available.
