The law dictates that vehicles stop for a school bus that is unloading passengers. Despite this measure meant to protect disembarking students, multiple people were injured and two others were killed in a fatal accident involving a stopped school bus in Florida. Those that were killed had been reportedly following the law, and were stopped behind the bus, when another vehicle failed to stop in time.
Two vehicles had stopped as a school bus dropped students off. Apparently, an approaching 18-wheeler did not stop in time and ended up overturning, hitting both the bus and the two stopped vehicles in the process. Both occupants of an SUV that had been waiting were killed. The driver of the vehicle -- a 40-year-old woman -- died at the site of the accident, while her 65-year-old passenger later succumbed to her own injuries.
