“I was coming up. Right as soon as I hit my house, all I seen was a red Jeep coming around the curve, the bus pulling off because there’s a bus stop right there, a loud screech and a huge bang and I put my 4 ways on and immediately called 911,” Melissa Nichols of Nanticoke said.

The crash is under investigation in Luzerne County.
