18 students injured in Kentucky bus crash

During the weekday, students often rely on school buses to transport them to and from their home and school. While this is a very common and relatively safe way to travel to and from school, these large vehicles can present some dangers on the roadways. They do not maneuver the same way as smaller vehicles, require more distance to stop and they have large blind spots. Bus drivers are tasked with driving these vehicles safely and according to current regulations. Additionally, other motorists are required to follow the rules of the road and obey and additional rules when traveling near school buses.

A recent bus accident involving a school bust and an automobile has left individual in Kentucky with many questions, as it is not exactly clear how this collision happened. Based on preliminary reports, the accident involved a school bus transporting students to Louisville elementary school.

At the time of the crash, the bus was transporting 41 students. The bus collided with a car near South Par and White Oak in Louisville. Of the 41 student passengers, 18 students were transported to the hospital for minor injuries. Additionally, two adults in the vehicle involved were transported to the hospital for injuries as well.

The crash remains under investigation, as it is not clear how the accident happened at this time. Once completed, police should be able to determine the cause and whether one or both parties contributed to the crash. Those harmed in the accident could then take legal action by filing a civil action.

Following a motor vehicle accident, victims could file a personal injury claim. This legal action not only helps the accident victim hold a negligent party accountable. It also helps with the recovery of compensation, which could help address medical bills and other losses.
