BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- The Manatee School District will pick up
all medical expenses of the 22 students injured in a school bus
crash.

A school bus video camera captured the screams of the students
as the bus slammed into a tractor-trailer in East Manatee on
Thursday. School officials called a news conference Friday to play
the video.

School officials say that there was no sign that the driver,
68-year-old Charles Robert Orr, tried to hit the brakes before the
impact with the truck.

Authorities cited Orr with careless driving. He was also injured
in the crash.
