Tulsa Public Schools bus nearly hit by train

"A school bus narrowly missed being hit by a train at a west Tulsa railroad crossing Thursday," FOX 23 reports.
One driver said he saw the driver of a Tulsa Public Schools bus full of children misjudge the crossing gate.

"I was in awe, you know. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. There were kids on the bus and they were hanging out the window," Jeremy Staton said.

Staton said the driver of the bus didn’t stop soon enough and was almost hit by the passing train. "Even in my own personal car I stop well behind a railroad crossing. I just couldn’t believe it. I really didn’t know what to do," Staton said.

The crossing gate didn’t just come down on top of the bus. It came down on the middle of the passenger section.

"There is really no words to explain how much more training they need to do if you have drivers with humans as cargo pulling up that close to a railroad track." Staton said.
