On Monday morning, a minivan hit a school bus, prompting seven students and an adult to be hospitalized. During the morning rush hour, around 7:30 am, the school bus accident occurred in Chester, Pennsylvania. The driver of the minivan was changing lanes when the individual sideswiped the bus. Both the minivan driver and seven students were brought to the Crozer Chester Medical Center for treatment of their personal injuries.
Accidents involving school buses or other large vehicles may be catastrophic. Due to the lack of safety features on a bus, the impact of a collision puts drivers and passengers at-risk for a variety of injuries as well as possible fatalities. Even skilled bus drivers may find it challenging to maneuver a bus when traffic crowds the roads, which could lead to crashes.
