It was a violent crash, and it's amazing that everyone on the Syracuse Centro bus survived the impact.  A pickup truck drove off a highway and smashed through the side of that parked bus.

Video from inside the bus shows the impact with shattered glass and passengers being tossed through the air.  It happened on the afternoon of January 19th, and the Post Standard reports that 8 people were injured and taken to Syracuse hospitals.

The driver of the pickup was an 82-year-old man who says he accidently hit the gas instead of the break while exiting Route 81 near Destiny USA.  He was ticketed for failure to reduce speed on a curve and failure to keep right on a highway.
