Everyone is OK following a scary crash that happened between a car and a Maine school bus on Monday morning.
According to a report from WGME 13, a man from Norridgewock, Maine, was driving on Main Street in Kingfield when he reportedly fell asleep.
As the man allegedly dozed off, an MSAD 58 school bus was stopped and picking up children for the morning bus run, the news station stated.
