At Raymond Blvd. and Broad Street a short time ago.
One NABI T-boned another one right in mid-intersection.
At least 3 hurt so far.
News 4 traffic chopper pilot Chai Simonson remarked this was one of the worst wrecks he has seen.

According to officials, one driver and one passenger were killed. There were 17 passengers on board the two buses and all were hospitalized.

Here is a link to a channel 11 broadcast from the scene.

I wonder if Mr. Barthelus' bus had mechanical problems or if he had a medical emergency.

Same thing I was thinking. According to witnesses, the bus may have been speeding and went through a red light. Doesn't sound right for an operator with all those years of experience.

After looking at some of the photos, the only skid marks are from the 5784 being pushed sideways.
