A school bus accident that occurred in Easley, South Carolina left two students with personal injuries. On Monday morning, around 7:30 am, a school bus carrying middle and high school students hit a passing truck after leaving an elementary school. It is suspected that the bus driver made an improper turn.
Since school buses are used on a regular basis, there is an increased risk of crashes taking place. In some cases, the bus driver may not have enough experience to safely and skillfully operate the bus or may speed or engage in reckless driving in order to reach their destination in time. Unfortunately, due to the lack of air bags contained in a bus, the occupants may sustain a range of injuries and potential fatalities, too.
