>> At least two people were killed in a horrific school bus crash in North New Jersey, on Thursday morning. More than 40 others were left injured, when the bus was ripped apart in the collision with a dump truck. It was carrying 38 students from Eastbrook Middle School on a field trip, to a restored 19th century canal town, called Waterloo Village.
That was cut short by the crash, killing a student and teacher and leaving others dangling by their seat belts.>> There were 38 students and seven adults on the bus, including the driver. There are two confirmed fatalities, God rest their souls, one adult and one student. While the dumptruck was mostly left intact by the collision, the front end of the school bus was severed from the vehicle and the body separated from its chassis.
Records from the US trucking regulator show the operator of the dumptruck, Mendes Trucking, has been involved in seven crashes in the last two years. Company officials were not immediately available for comment.
