A crash with a school bus could bring serious injuries or even fatalities for any parties involved in the accident. Bus drivers require a substantial amount of training and experience to safely operate a large vehicle like a school bus. If the driver does not possess enough training or fails to use caution around other vehicles, a serious collision could cause harm to numerous victims.
