Maryland school bus crash injures students

Accidents happen in Maryland every day. It is often difficult when an accident occurs due to no fault of an injured party. Victims have to bear the pain of injuries, the expense of treatment and other inconveniences that result from a crash. Recently, five students and a bus driver were injured when a bus crashed into a tractor-trailer.

Some details of the collision are still being determined, but authorities believe that distraction may have been the biggest contributing factor. According to initial reports, the bus driver admitted to not having her eyes on the road. She says a student was distracting her, and she was speaking to the student through the rearview mirror. By the time she noticed a stopped tractor-trailer, it was too late.

The bus crashed into the tractor-trailer, resulting in the injuries of five students and the bus driver. Three ambulances were requested at the scene, and all injured parties were taken to a medical center to be treated. Everyone is expected to survive their injuries. The bus driver has already been charged with failure to control speed to avoid a collision.

Any accident is upsetting, and it is frightening to imagine the worst-case scenario, which is often death. Although many victims do not die as a result of a crash, the aftermath can be difficult to process. Medical treatment is expensive, and some victims may experience emotional trauma. Maryland personal injury attorneys are experienced with all types of accidents and can assist victims in understanding their options for legal recourse.
