Vodka Found in Truck that Collided with School Bus

Posted October 23, 1997

— One week after a fatal crash in Franklin County, investigators say they found a vodka bottle inside the tractor-trailer.

A high school volley ball player and coach were killed when the truck collided with a school bus. Investigators say concrete septic tanks fell off the back of the truck and smashed into the bus.

Each septic tank weighs about 13,000 pounds.
