The bus did not hit the light pole initially. It was going pretty fast and couldn’t stop for the stop sign and broad sided the pickup that I was driving, sending me into the oncoming traffic lanes with no back tire. I was able to dodge and correct and get back safely to my lanes. I’m just glad no one was hurt.
