School bus involved in crash that caused injuries

Parents all across Maryland trust the public school system to transport their children to and from school. It is often not easy to release a child into the care of another, but it is often necessary to ensure attendance at school. Unfortunately, some parents recently received a terrible phone call when they were notified of a recent crash their children were involved in while riding a school bus.

The collision occurred near an intersection and involved three different vehicles. One of the vehicles was a Maryland public school system bus, and it was transporting special needs children. One vehicle was a passenger car, and the other was a truck. Authorities have not reported how the accident occurred or who may be at fault; the investigation is pending. 

Traffic accidents: Impaired driving may have impacted crash

Despite awareness and education of the dangers of negligent driving, some Maryland drivers continue to take risks. Unfortunately, any risks that are taken can result in serious traffic accidents. Accidents often result in expensive property damage, medical care for injuries or burial expenses for deceased victims. Sadly, a recent crash resulted in two deaths and multiple injuries, and it may have been preventable.

The crash occurred when a 28-year-old driver crossed from the southbound lanes into the northbound lanes of the opposite traffic.

Don't go light on a teen who causes a car crash: Be firm

Teenagers are in a precarious position. They're excited to get their licenses, but they also have to be extremely careful not to collide with others. They're essentially learning to drive by doing, which means that any mistakes they make, while a result of inexperience, can still lead to injuries.

That's why you felt terrible asking the police to hold a teen responsible for injuring your child. You were angry, but you also understand that the young person is an inexperienced driver. Now, you just want to get the compensation you need for your child while making sure the teen is educated in better driving techniques.

Failure to provide safe premise: Big Lots being sued after fall

Maryland residents may be interested in one woman's claims that a series of moments have resulted in pain, surgeries and expensive therapy. She is accusing the store Big Lots Inc. of failure to provide safe premise after she suffered a fall from a patch of dirt.

According to store video footage, the store cashier can be seen sweeping near the checkout station but had stopped sweeping to help a customer.
