    How do you not see nine head of cattle on the road?

    • hmmmm

      Why were the cattle in the roadway, and if it is dark, and the cattle are black it is very easy not to see them.

    I am sure he saw the cattle all the way to his front bumper. My point being the article said the bus was unable to avoid the cattle.

      Lets see hit cows or Roll bus by swerving and hurt or kill some. Hamburger and Steaks sounds good to me. Also you wasn’t driving the bus. Could of just came over a hill or a blind spot in the road. At 65mph it is hard to bring a bus to a screeching halt. You are probably one that would swerve to miss a deer and end up rolling your vehicle in the ditch.
