Apparently, a school bus from Pasco County was travelling along Interstate 75 when a 2000 Mazda 626 hit it. 56-year-old James Yan Jr was driving the vehicle and was preparing to get on an onramp when he hit the bus.

Yant and his two passengers, 23-year-old Felicia Smith and 27-year-old Frederick Whiting, sustained injuries and were taken to a Tampa hospital for treatment.

In addition, four of the students on the buss, attending Wesley Chapel High School, were also injured, though not seriously. They were released from the scene to their parents and not taken directly to the hospital.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, charges are pending. Thankfully, none of the children were seriously hurt.
