Westport – School Bus Crash
A school bus crashed into a tree in Westport last Friday morning.
Just before 8:00 a.m., authorities received reports of a crash on Sylvan Road North. Emergency teams dispatched to the area discovered a school bus that crashed into a tree. The vehicle was en route to Kings Highway Elementary School and was carrying students. People near the crash site helped students evacuate the crashed bus. No student sustained serious injuries or needed to be hospitalized. The driver was trapped and had to be extricated by responding firefighters. They had to use specialized hydraulic equipment to free the operator. He has since been hospitalized and is expected to recover. Authorities are currently investigating the incident.

Emergency teams would always have various equipment in their arsenal to help motorists involved in road-related incidents, and this case exemplifies how important these tools are. Having said that, identifying the causes of these accidents is crucial if future crashes are to be avoided. Doing this will also allow both the state and injured parties to file appropriate charges against responsible parties, particularly in cases where DUI, reckless behavior, or negligence could be involved.
