    heres my take. the jeep was probably following too close to the school bus which is high profile commercial vehicle and built like a tank. given the weight and size of the tractor trailer, the driver probably tried their best to stop but simply couldn’t because he/she was following too close too the jeep. the driver of the jeep is very lucky to be alive let alone suffering just non-lifethreatening injuries. the jeep driver and the tractor trailer were dumb, dumb, dumb.
