Driver in school bus wreck speaks out
SPENCER, Okla.—After an accident involving a school bus sends six children to the hospital, the driver of the car is speaking out about the case.
D’Misha Williams’ eyes are full of tears thinking about an accident between her SUV and a school bus Friday afternoon.
She said, “I thought that me and my daughter were actually dead.”
Williams says she remembers hearing the screeching of brakes and that is when she saw the bus heading towards her vehicle.
She said, “So my first instinct was to stop and see where the brakes were coming from. So I took a look to my left, then I took a look to my right. And as I looked to my right, I saw the bus like coming so fast over a hill that it shocked me to the point where I was stuck.”
The pair collided near the intersection of N.E. 39th St. and Texas with both vehicles suffering injuries.
First responders treated a half-dozen students, along with Williams and her daughter.
Williams was released from the hospital that same day but her daughter, Annia, stayed overnight.
In addition to the physical injuries from the crash, Williams was also issued three tickets at the scene.
Those tickets include failure to yield, failure to have proper restraints for her child and failure to show proof of insurance.
She said, “As far as me yielding, I had already yielded and as I proceeded to go on, how fast this bus came over this hill. There was no time for me to do anything or no time for her. So either way it went, she still would have hit me.”
Everyone who was injured in the crash is expected to be okay.
