Aug. 03, 1982 - On Friday night, a multiple car collision occurred between two buses and four cars. Two buses were separated by two cars driving on the road when the first bus put on its breaks suddenly. The second bus couldn't stop on the slippery road and crushed the two cars. The 1st bus hit two more cars in the right lane because of the force of the collision. The bus went up in flames but the children could not get out because one of the cars was blocking the exit. Despite the help of firefighters, it was too late. 53 people, 44 of which were children, died in the fire. (Credit Image: © Keystone Pictures USA/
