Eight school children riding the school bus home suffered minor injuries after their bus collided with another vehicle. The children were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries. Police did not say which school the children attended and that the collision is still under investigation.
Nearly 66,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in Louisiana last year, which included almost 1,000 injuries that involved a collision with a large truck or a bus. Collisions with these kinds of vehicles could lead to serious injury and even death, especially when these crashes occur at high speeds on the interstate. School bus crashes are usually rare, but they often lead to numerous injuries based off of the high number of people occupying the bus. These school buses serve as large targets that can easily be struck by a distracted or inattentive driver, which has the potential to injure many of the young students riding in it. If you or a loved one has been injured in a school bus accident, you should contact a well-versed personal injury attorney who can take your claims to court and hold the responsible parties liable for damages that resulted from the accident.
