11:32 am
my unit was notified there was at least one fatality involved and multiple serious injuries. whee we arrived at least 15 people haddbeen transported off of the bus to area hospitals. at least three other hospitals and number of individuals with either minor injuries or no injury and remained on scene. deceased at the scene. the investiiation involves sending don't -- detectives to the area hospitals and to the scenes while interviewiig individuals at dia to determine what happened. hour on scene started supervised the investigation and i will let him explain to you what he found.
11:33 am
we came into contact with the bus, we discovered it had made a left turn taking you to level iv east normally the passenger pickup area the bus had left the right side of the roadway and drove into one of the pillars that supports the six east ramp. it was a raised roadway pillar that was struck. there were several witnesses on scene, they have to the conference center at the airport, so i had a chance to talk with them after i had an initial look. so here is what we learned, we know there were three buses picking up students, legacy high school students and they are part of the football program along with some coaches, adult chaperones, parents, grandparents, a number of adults and students attributed throughout the buses.
11:34 am
the lead bus meaning the bus that was initially leading the terminal building, i am told by witnesses that they were ready to go ho. they were to take pena boulevard backup to broomfield where they would be dropping off at the school. instead of leaving pena outbound the bus driver took the return to terminal loop, so terminal, there are three lanes that permit a right turn, two lanes to take you to the return to terminal. one of those lanes is shared by both the right and left turn. if you can imagine the forks, in lane number two, there is an option of turning left or right. the other lanes are must turned,
11:35 am
instead of making the right turnnto outbound pena made the right turn onto return to terminal, my question for my witnesses was why was something forgotten? do we know why that occurred and nobody knows for certain, but thhre were a lot of guesses, a lot of folks maybe they forgot something, forgot a student or equipment, nobody could tell me why the bus driver made the turn. taking you from fourth east 26 east or fifth east if you have permission to enter five east as the three forks come off the bus driver remained to the right which would have taken them to fourth east and instead of making the final turn, drove off the roadway straight into a pillar. evidence from the scene showed us the bus did make a straight- line movement to the pillar. in the dirt, the tire tracks did not show any sign of left
11:36 am
straight off the roadway into the pillar. that is how the crrsh occurred. we are left with trying to explain why it occurred, frankly there is a big mystery that we are in the process of attempting to answer and we may not get all the answers we are looking for simply because one of our most important witnesses was declared deceased as a result of the crash. we are left with mechanical was there anything wrong mechanically with the bus? i have a certified bus inspector taking on the tax -- task as we speak. we should haae the inspection started underway sometime today. there is also the case as we speculate, was the bus driver having difficulty, a medical condition. now, we have got to start
11:37 am
to family and friends and doctors. do we know anything about medical condition at the time -?of the crash, so that will be additional follow-up. we don't have those answers yet either. as difficult as it may be, was this an intentional act? there is no evidence for me to believe that, but certainly it is one of the things we have to be open to is this intentional. quite ffankly, we don't have solid answers to any questions. any questions about the scene evidence or what we learned? >> again, some officials with the denver police department and others providing what they know about the leggcy high school football team school bus crash. that happened late yesterday where the driver of thh bus was killed. if you're joining us, they know what happened the bus went straight into the pillar but
11:38 am
bus was coming back to dia so let's listen in as they ask a couple questions. >> we have had the opportunity to ask many of the witnesses who had been driving and i rely on their experience as folks who have experience behind the wheel, how fast do you think it was going for folks on the bus. and i got a consistent answer of 30 to 40 miles per hour. there is evidence at the is 30 to 40 miles per hour appropriate for that section? no. my best recollection of traveling that is that we are down to 15 miles per hour for that section as we are getting to the fourth east level where we will have folks walking. speed limits have been brought down very far. when they see 15, that is my
11:39 am
do know it was lower than 30 or 40 miles per hour. thhre is certainly no way for me to know that absolutell, the crash was significant. and the injuries to the driver significant. does that mean medically there was an issue and she was deceased prior to that? i don't know that we will find that oh, i have had that discussion with corners in cases similar to th sometimethe condition of the body does not permit them to say for sure there was a medical issue in the heart or the brain. it may be the body is not in condition for us to know that. >> i will share with youu i have had conversations with more than 15 people who were on the
11:40 am
and, we covered that, tell me about the condition of the driver as you were heading off the road, was there any discussion and all of them say it seem to be a normal trip until they started filling bumps off road. and then shortly thereafter there was an impact. there was no statement or no conversation with a bus driver about where we are going and there was no outburst they reported. from this standpoint, that part is a mystery. corner, the toxicology report will come back it is usually 6 to 8 weeks, so we are awaiting those. there is a requirement for a physical, they have to be cleared to have a commercials
11:41 am
we are working with the school district to obtain the records, when was her last medical evaluation. the school district has been fully cooperative so let me say that. adams 12 has been cooperative and they are assisting in the investigation. at this point, we have allowed an opportunity to come to terms with what they are dealing with, we will insert ourselves and have a conversation, but we want o be respectful to what they are going to. >> that will be part of the mechanical inspection. i don't know yet. certainly, if there is it would be part of the case. >> [ reporter asking question ] >> you know, i have to say, i
11:42 am
certainly don't haveedifficulty ffom a personal standpoint. from a professional standpoint we have collisions out there most of them relate to human error. is there an engineering problem? i don't know that i am qualified to say that. i would say all the crashes i respond to have some element of human misadventure that causes most of the crashes. >> [ reporter asking question ] >> that is part of the she taken the tripis this the first or 10th time? that would ccrtainly go to answer the question. i don't know that. >> [ reporter asking question ] >> you kkow, the damage was so significant i did not get a chance to review that. but, understand at the reported
11:43 am
give, the crush damage to the bus was significant and as a result it was difficult to get in their. i left the scene prior to the full extraction so i did not play a part in that, my detectives would know and they are out conducting some of that. it is. >> [ reporter asking question ] innher 40s, we are not ready to release any more information about her identity yet. i have had a detective who was able to review video and he does not report any interference with other vehicles.>> [ reporter asking question ] >> the ones that i see are severe because that is my job
11:44 am
it would take a look at all the acts and reports for them to know that. i know that we have automobiles and pedestrians interaccing on at least four levels, if not six if you include the commercial motor vehicle level. at times through distraction or carelessness humans and vehicles come into contact with each other just from the way we crossed the lanes of traffic to get from parking into the terminal. a vast majority don't need me, so they're probably not severe as this one. >> so, that is the denver police department officials giving us the latest on the deadly bus crash from yesterday with legacy high school football team members also parent chaperones and coaches at dia. >> a lot of people wondering what happened or the bigger question, why. right now they just don't have
11:45 am
through and talk to family members about possible medical issues to see if that played a role. they don't know if speed or possibly if it was intentional.
