“The SUV is barely recognizable and I’m standing at a distance but what I can see of the SUV, it doesn’t look like an SUV at all and the front of the brats bus, there’s no cab there’s nothing left it’s just a box,” one woman said who pulled up after the accident.

Both vehicles were towed away. Investigators still aren’t sure what caused the collision.
