RACINE, Wis. — The City of Racine has released new video from inside a city bus as it crashed into a school bus in September.
The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. near the corner of Shoop and Goold streets in Racine. The crash caves in the front driver’s side of the city bus, pinning the driver inside. The crash caused injuries to the driver that family says required surgery.
The day of the crash, Wednesday, Sept. 6, doorbell surveillance camera footage showed the school bus blowing a stop sign and a city bus crashing into it.
According to newly acquired police reports, several neighbors say a stop sign at the intersection is hard to see due to tree branches blocking it from view.
Officers photographed the intersection shortly after the crash, showing the stop sign was out of view until very close to the intersection. Then, several branches had been cut from the tree to make the stop sign easier to see.
