MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ. (CNN) – Authorities in northern Arizona say it’s “one of the most foolish things they’ve ever seen someone do.”

They’re referring to this!

Crews say the driver of this bus, loaded with passengers – attempted to drive through flood waters that were six feet deep.

When fire department crews arrived, the bus had already started to float downstream about 3-hundred yards and was on its side.

Fortunately the passengers were able to escape the bus through the windows.

No one was injured.

Some emergency response crews were delayed in reaching the bus due to significant rain falls causing other washes.

The Mohave County Sheriff is handling the accident investigation.

It’s unclear if the driver will face charges.
