Your chances of survival greatly improve if it is possible to keep your bus or semi-truck upright.  Never give up on a wreck, even after driving off the road.  --that is good advice I was told during my trucking career.  I don't know the specifics of the wreck you mentioned or even if this advice is applicable to that wreck.  However, It is something everyone should know.

"This truck was traveling eastbound, carrying steel pipes. He jackknifed in the median and the trailer overturned with the pipes, causing those to spill," she said.

Some of the pipes rolled into the westbound lane, causing the bus to "either hit some of the pipes, or possibly swerved and hit some of the pipes, and it overturned," Kasinga said.

Thirty-two passengers were aboard the bus, which belonged to the El Paso - Los Angeles Limousine Express company, according to NBCLosAngeles.com.

The bus had stopped in from Phoenix, where it switched drivers, en route to Los Angeles from El Paso, NBCLosAngeles.com reported.
