LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- (WDRB) All but one of the 51 students hurt in Friday morning's school bus crash have been released from the hospital. The student is listed in good condition at Kosair Children's Hospital.
The accident did not come as a big surprise to neighbors. Neighbors say a combination of hard-to-see road signs and often careless drivers make the intersection an accident waiting to happen.
Jeff Moreman is still cleaning up debris more than 24 hours after the school bus landed in his front yard.
"You can tell it had something to do with kids. There were tons of pencils, packs of lip gloss. I found a big hoop earring," said Moreman.
Jeff is a new driver, about the same age as the teens who collided with the bus. He's keenly aware of the dangers at the intersection of Mooreman and Lower River Road.
"They got a big stop sign but you can barely see it. There's another sign right in front of it that obstructs it. And you got all these tall weeds when you're coming down the road here that obstruct it as well."
You can see the problem. In the best of conditions, the stop sign is barely visible. And it was wet and dark when the accident happened, making the intersection even more hazardous.
Students on the bus say there was no warning.
"I was in the back of the bus when everything happened, and it just started flipping," said Lexi Jones.
Eric Adams heard the crash and helped rescue some of the 48 students. He says he's not surprised that a serious accident happened here, but perhaps some good will come of it.
"Much as I hate to say, maybe it will turn some eyes this way. Maybe it will give us a little bit of notice of what we do need at this corner."
Neighbors say one possible solution here would be a light; either a street light to illuminate this intersection or a flashing caution light. But neighbors hope something is done here soon.
"I don't want to die right in front of my house. That would be misfortunate," said Moreman.
The investigation into the accident continues, but police say they do not expect to file charges.
