"I thought this was crazy right here. I've never seen one this big with two buses – there are always accidents at this intersection," neighbor Tracy Polk told FOX6 News at the time of the crash.

As the school bus was peeled out of the library wall, it quickly became clear the damage was something. Thankfully, there were no patrons in the library at the time; the bus hit the portion of the library that houses the children's room.
