VIDEO: First responders described the scene of the deadly crash on I-70 Tuesday as something they have never experienced before and something they hope to never experience again.
They said those hours were filled with tough decisions. Several witnesses called 911 to alert them of the crash. One of the 911 calls came from a woman who was riding on the charter bus filled with more than 50 students and chaperones from Tusky Valley schools.
“We’re in a van pool, yes we are. It’s on fire, we need help and we have children still in the coach,” said the woman.
“Ok. Can you get the children out,” the operator asks.
“We’re trying but the back of the bus is on fire,” the woman said. On the call you can hear the woman taking a head count and consoling the students.
The West Licking Fire District was the first on scene.
