Multiple people injured in Huntsville bus, dump truck wreck

Phil Bachelor told WAAY 31 he was one of 5 people on the bus that was turning north onto Jordan Lane. He was sitting in the back right corner when a dump truck came in from his left, "that truck was coming through the widow and through the bus," said Bachelor.

Jacob McCoy and his friend told WAAY 31 they were driving next to the dump truck when they saw a tan truck start to turn left onto Oakwood Avenue from Jordan Lane, "the truck t-boned that truck and the dump truck tipped over on it's side and slid over on the bus," said McCoy.

Bachelor told WAAY 31 he was the only person on the bus not to go to the hospital, "I could have been on that side. It could have been me," said Bachelor.

The bus and the dump truck were so connected, it took 4 tries to get them apart. Diesel fuel was spilled on the road. Crews put down a material to soak it up and then take it away.

As Bachelor looked over the carnage from the wreck, he told WAAY 31 the situation was hard to believe, "I'm just thankful I wasn't on that other side," said Bachelor.

The city of Huntsville told WAAY 31 they could fix damage to the curb and be paid back later by the insurance company of the driver deemed to be at fault. They haven't decided if the damage is significant enough to warrant rushing to fix it.
