School bus driver causes Maryland crash

Although school bus drivers are trusted to get students to and from school, accidents do happen. Some accidents are no fault of the driver, but unfortunately, some drivers are found culpable. In a recent Maryland crash, a school bus driver was found at fault for reportedly speeding, which caused a severe accident that injured five. 

On a past Monday, early morning traffic was delayed when a school bus that was in route to drop off its students crashed. The driver of the bus is said to have been speeding, which caused her to lose control while attempting to exit the route. The bus flipped onto its side where it abruptly stopped. A car in the northbound lane then collided with the bus. 

The driver of the bus and a school bus aid, a 44-year-old woman, were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Two passengers, both 15-year-old high school students, suffered minor injuries and were taken to a separate hospital. The fifth injured party, the driver of the passing car, suffered minor injuries but was also hospitalized. 

The driver of the bus was charged with negligent driving due to her reckless speed.  The parties involved in this Maryland crash may also be entitled to a different type of justice. A personal injury claim can be filed to restore any financial burdens associated with the incident. An experienced attorney who specializes in such cases may be a fine asset for one to have when going this long and stressful process.
