Name of Victim in School bus Crash Released
“It was unbelievable. It was the loudest crash I’d ever heard in my life.”
Skid marks outside Nesa Adams house are all that's left from a deadly school bus accident early Thursday morning.
“It absolutely mangled that car.”
Nesa ran out to help finding the driver of the car unconscious. She started giving him CPR until help arrived.
“They cut him out but unfortunately it was too late to help him.”
Nesa said the car was speeding down highway 56 trying to pass two cars.
While getting over he clipped the car in front of him, spun out of control and hit the bus.
“He hit the bus at full impact and the bus was stopped,” said Nesa.
“It was horrifying.”
Shelly Bible's granddaughter was getting on the bus when the accident happened.
“She had one foot on the step and one foot on the ground when the car struck the bus.”
Shelly said it was the most terrifying thing she has ever seen.
“I thank God all 3 of my girls are ok,” she said.
“Things definitely could have been much worse,” said Kyle Wilson, the superintendent of Sasakwa Public Schools.
Wilson said 22 students were on the bus only one went to the hospital with a minor injury.
“We're glad none of them were hurt seriously.”
Wilson said speeding on Highway 56 is a major problem.
“We have several bus drivers report that they're being passed daily with lights and flashes going stop signs out. The whole bit.”
He hopes the incident sparks change.
“We'd love to have a law enforcement presence anything like that.”
Shelly feels the same way.
“We need to get signs on each side that's there's a bus stop.”
She offers her own advice to drivers, “If there's kids out on the highest pay attention.”
The driver of the car was 19-year-old, Shane Denton.

Mock drill in SD riles Keystone pipeline opponents
May 24, 2013 15:48 GMT
HOT SPRING, S.D. (AP) -- An emergency drill in Hot Springs has outraged opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline and a proposed uranium mine in western South Dakota after it portrayed the groups as domestic terrorists.
The Hot Springs School District practiced a lockdown May 14 after pretending to receive a letter from a group promising destruction unless the projects were stopped.
The school district and county have been bombarded with emails and calls about the drill from people who felt it unfairly demonized opponents of Keystone XL and a proposed uranium mine near Edgemont.
Farmer Don Kelley tells the Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/12S5HBk) he and others want an apology.
Fall River County Emergency Manager Frank Maynard says the focus was on the drill itself, rather than the fabricated threat, and no insult was intended.
