I was on the bus what happened was the bus did stop but the mail truck was speeding and when we pulled out the mail truck was going so fast that when it swerved to avoid the bus it flipped an slid on its side.


There is a school bus that drives extremely fast through my neighborhood. It scares me because there are pets and kids that play near and on the streets. It's on a loop street, where everyone should slow down. I finally got a picture of it. I need to turn it into the school district.
