Cement truck collides with pre-k school bus; Driver admits cocaine & pot use before tragic crash


The cement truck driver who allegedly killed two people when he barreled into a school bus carrying 40 preschoolers back from a field trip in Texas admitted to consuming cocaine and marijuana before getting behind the wheel.

Newly released dashcam footage of the tragedy also apparently caught Jerry Hernandez in a lie — the video showed no broken-down vehicle in front of his cement truck that forced him to swerve into oncoming traffic and collide with the bus.

The terrifying footage, taken from inside the Hays Consolidated Independent School District bus, shows the cement truck suddenly veer over the double yellow lines on a rural highway outside Austin.

The truck hit the bus on its side with enough force that it rolled across the pavement, sending a flurry of papers across the road.

The roof of the bus can be seen crumpling to the ground as bystanders rush to rescue the young victims.
