NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Major safety changes are being rolled out after a school bus crash in Chattanooga that left six students dead.

Durham School Services, the company that hired the bus driver, announced a multi-million dollar safety investment on Thursday.

The company is instituting a nationwide complaint management system that will directly connect every school Durham serves. The system will allow teachers and administrators to quickly report issues they may see with the buses and bus drivers.

Another measure includes new high-tech cameras in all buses.

“I’m personally heartbroken by the tragedy in Tennessee,” said David A. Duke, president and CEO of Durham School Services. “Now, we are determined to learn from what happened and prevent this kind of thing from ever happening again.”

The Chattanooga buses will be the first in the country to have the camera systems installed before the end of the year.
