Watch Ohio Troopers Respond to Deadly Charter Bus Crash

Nov. 28, 2023
In body camera footage released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, troopers are seen helping victims in a fiery, multi-vehicle collision that left six people dead.

Body camera footage released by the Ohio Highway Patrol shows troopers responding to a deadly multi-vehicle crash earlier this month that killed six people.

The chain-reaction collision happened at about 9 a.m. Nov. 14 when a tractor-trailer rear-ended an SUV and a charter bus carrying high school students along Interstate 70 in Licking County, WLWT-TV reports. Five vehicles were involved in the crash, and at least three of the vehicles caught fire.

In the body camera footage released Monday, a trooper and bystanders are seen helping a crash victim from a wrecked vehicle. Another trooper boarded the bus and looked for people trapped inside as flames consumed the rear of the vehicle.

"Anyone here? Anyone?" the trooper is heard yelling.

Three teenage band students from Tuscarawas Valley Schools were killed on the bus. A teacher and two parent chaperones riding in another vehicle also died in the crash, and over a dozen people were injured.

The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating the incident.
