    The bus was bringing the kids home from the Academy of Environmental Leadership when it crashed.

    The children were described as having bumps and bruises.

    "The impact was powerful," said Milton Rosa, a witness who helped rescue the children from the overturned bus. "There's always accidents at this corner, always accidents. Nothing we can do because of the way these people speed."
