School bus slams into swimming pool; authorities say cat corpse may be partially to blame for wreck

A school bus in Florida slammed into a swimming pool Friday during the morning commute and troopers believe it’s all because of a dead cat.

The bus collided with a Jeep after the car swerved on the roadway and the bus was forced to take evasive action. Authorities believe a dead cat in the roadway could have played a part in why the Jeep swerved.


After striking the Jeep, troopers said the bus crashed into the pool.

Authorities said there were nine children on board when the bus crashed. The children and the bus driver were not injured. The bus was heading to a nearby school, and all nine passengers were picked up by another bus and made it to school safely.

Fire rescue officials said the driver inside of the Jeep was injured, but, at this time, those injuries were not believed to be serious. Officials said the woman in the Jeep had three children in her vehicle.

Hazmat crews rushed to the scene because crews were worried that the school bus might have leaked fuel into the swimming pool.
