A Horrifying video released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows the moment a school bus crashed and overturned — sending the 25 students on board flying and injuring eight of them.

The incident happened after the Northern Local Schools bus struck a 1996 Ford Mustang, whose driver failed to stop at a red light at an intersection in Perry County on Dec. 19, according to police.

The video, which was released Monday, shows the students catapulted from their seats, hitting the roof and then getting pinned as they scream for help.

Danny Hupp, 74, the driver, remained calm throughout the ordeal and told the students to get out through the windows and the emergency exit if they could.

Eight students and Hupp were taken to Licking Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the news outlet reported.

The driver of the Mustang, Joseph Thornton, 42, who was driving with a suspended license at the time of the crash, was taken to Mount Carmel East Hospital with serious injuries, police said.
