Accident today: Yellow Jeep vs School Bus. We lost a fellow Jeeper. :(

Heard on the news that a school bus driver blew a red light and crashed into a Jeep Wrangler and a Jeep Cherokee. The guy in the Yellow Jeep Wrangler died.

Photos and news article in the link. Be safe everyone!

Smith planned to attend the Jeep Jamboree in Aspen, Colorado, in August. He was driving a distinctive yellow Jeep he bought and customized for his wife as a Christmas present, but he had built his own custom Jeep for the Jamboree.
