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

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.
