According to The Baltimore Sun, an auto accident involving a school bus and an SUV took place in northeastern Baltimore County. The crash occurred shortly before 8AM. While the specifics of the accident were not discussed, it was determined that it was the SUV that crashed into the bus, an indication that the driver of the SUV may have played more of a determining role in the crash.
The driver of the SUV was taken to Franklin Square Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries. An update on the man’s condition was not made available at the time of the article. Luckily, none of the students that were being transported to the Maryland School for the Blind in Parkville were injured.
While accidents of all kinds are dangerous, those involving school buses are especially problematic, given that a large number of children are present on a school bus and are typically not wearing seatbelts. If it is determined that a school bus driver is at fault for an accident, then that driver and the school district responsible for employing the driver can be held liable for damages resulting from the accident, including costs associated with injuries and recovery.
