The boy's mother, Tricia Fasching, told Patch: "The spike went into the bus exactly where his head was, but thankfully he ducked as low as he could get when the he heard the brakes and saw the equipment starting to smash into the side of the bus. He was covered in glass. It was in his shoes, underwear, backpack etc and he had to shower when he got home since he had glass on his scalp."
One other student was on the bus.
Lilly did not see the bus until it was too late, WFMZ reported, and ten windows on the bus were damaged. Lilly and the bus driver were not injured and neither person showed signs of impairment, according to WFMZ.
