Six individuals were hospitalized after a bus and vehicle crash occurred on Monday morning. The bus, which was carrying clients from an organization that offers employment and support services for individuals with differing abilities, collided with another vehicle in Washington Township, Warren County, New Jersey around 8:43 am. Six occupants from the bus were taken to the Hackettstown Medical Center for treatment of their personal injuries although no information was available about the extent of the victims’ injuries.
Buses are common forms of transportation used by many commuters, visitors, and others seeking an economical and convenient way to travel. Unfortunately, due to the size of a bus as well as the lack of safety features contained in a bus, the possibility of occupants sustaining personal injuries, catastrophic injuries, and even fatalities may occur. Survivors of bus crashes may experience mental trauma and debilitating injuries which may affect their quality of life.
