One student is dead after a Eastern Pulaski Community Schools bus was struck by a flatbed truck this morning on U.S. 31 near Argos.

The crash happened at a railroad crossing on Northbound US-31 where the bus was required to stop. The driver of the truck, 26-year-old Perry Tylor, struck the bus from behind as it was accelerating away from the tracks.

There were 38 eighth grade students and three adult chaperones on the bus.
