New Haven – Multiple Injuries In Bus Accident
A school bus with passengers collided with a car in New Haven yesterday afternoon.
At around 3:45 p.m., a school bus taking 17 students home from Ross Woodward School was traveling south on Middletown Avenue when a vehicle traveling north suddenly swerved onto its path. This resulted in a head-on collision between the two vehicles. Of the 17 students riding the bus, 6 were taken to the hospital for evaluation and treatment. Officials have yet to identify the driver of the second vehicle and whether or not the motorist was injured. The incident is currently under investigation. This post will be updated as soon as officials release more information.
Head-on collisions typically result in serious injuries. Authorities will always exhibit due diligence in establishing accountability in these cases as this can help them address issues and improve road safety for everyone. That said, if investigators discover negligence, reckless behavior or DUI in these incidents, injured parties may have various legal options that can help them find closure. Under appropriate circumstances, this can include filing for compensation/damages.
