"This is a heartbreaking tragedy," Gov. Bob Riley
said in a statement.
Frantic parents went to the scene, where some stu-

Hospital officials said staff members had trouble

Before help arrived, terrified students tried to
climb from the wreckage.
"They were falling on each other. People were
screaming, yelling, crying," said LaWanda Jeffer-

bruised. "I was scared, panicking and just getting
ready to cry."

phones shortly after the bus hit the ground, Jefferson
