View of the Bus Approach and Impact with the Rear of the Tractor-trailer This view shows the full speed approach and impact of the bus into the rear of the tractor-trailer. The bus was traveling at approximately 58 mph at impact while the tractor-trailer was stationary. After impact with the truck, the bus swung out to the right (as seen from above) and impacted the side embankment before coming to rest.
