Orlando, FL -- Authorities say Mariah Hutchinson jumped from her seat and grabbed the steering wheel as the bus collided with a guardrail. The other student, Joshua Cosme, then pulled the emergency brake to stop the bus.
Hutchinson's mother says the bus would have gone over the guardrail if the students hadn't stopped it.
Three of the students were hurt, including the two who stopped the bus. They were all treated and released.
Driver Kenneth Baker remains hospitalized in fair condition.
Officials say he's been a school bus driver for nine years and had no history of illness.
