WATCH: School Buses Crash After One Blows Stop Sign

Three suffer minor injuries in Tuesday crash in Copiague.

A home surveillance video posted on YouTube shows a crash between two school buses in Copiague Tuesday afternoon. 

Three people–both drivers and a female child–were treated and released from the hospital after suffering minor injuries in the crash at the intersection of Molloy Street and Mazzini Avenue, police said. 

In the video footage, a full-size bus heading west on Mazzini Street can be seen barreling through a stop sign and colliding with the rear of a smaller bus, causing it to overturn. The smaller bus had been traveling south on Molloy Street and did not have a stop sign at the intersection where the crash occurred. 

No criminal charges have been filed in the crash, but News 12 reported that both drivers have been suspended by Educational Bus Transportation, which owns both buses, during an investigation.

This here is exactly why parents shouldn't put there hiss on a bus small or not if they can drive them & really love their kids. This big bus driver didn't EVEN slow down to STOP at the STOP sign OMG....

Just like anything else, there are good employees who take pride in their job, and there are very very poor ones like this one.. Can't judge "all bus drivers" by these incidents. I am and I know many many awesome drivers who treat their bus kids just like their own and safety is our top priority. Shame on this one for giving the great ones a bad name!

Both suspended? Why? Only one at fault here!! And that ain't the driver of the one lying on its side.
