The Botetourt County Sheriff’s office has released one of the calls that came into 911 shortly after a school bus overturned Wednesday morning with 39 students on board. The call is from a student, and it provides some sense of both the disorientation and calmness that witnesses described at the scene. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
