    I wonder if landing on the trailer might have saved some lives by cushioning the fall?

    I read about this last night. Didn't read this article.

    As of last night, the article said there were 12 prisoners and 3 guards on the bus when it crashed. Only 5 were being cared for at a local hospital, with the other 10 presumed dead by the media.

    My thought was the trailer provided a crush zone as opposed to landing straight on the ground.

    I heard on the radio 8 prisoners and 2 guards died in the crash.

    I wonder if any of the prisoners already had a death sentence on them.:ban:

    It's sad all around, no doubt.

    I guess the railroad employees made it out okay.

    I don't think death penalty prisoners are mixed in with the general prison population.
