A tractor-trailer apparently veered out of its lane about 10:45 a.m. and sideswiped the bus, which got pushed part way down an embankment along the interstate between Missouri 7 and Adams Dairy Parkway.
The impact tore open a long gash on the side of the trailer that struck the bus.
Witnesses reported seeing the tractor-trailer driver swerving before impact, Stosberg said.
Later Monday the tractor-trailer driver was issued a citation for careless and imprudent driving, Stosberg said.
The driver told authorities
Pre-Approvals, Purchases, and Refi's! | Town & Country Mortgage Services, Inc. is an Illinois Residential Mortgage Licensee. NMLS #221739 | Page 2
Stosberg said the driver was traveling too fast for conditions.
The driver's vehicle careened through the median and flew over a cable barrier and crashed a guardrail before striking the first crashed truck, which then hit the firefighters.
The trooper was injured while diving down an embankment to avoid the vehicle, Stosberg said.
