During Thursday afternoon, a multi-car wreck with a school bus injured multiple students in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Around noon, the car accident occurred when the first car rear-ended another vehicle, which caused that second vehicle to slam into the school bus. After driving away from the bus, the second car hit a third car. At least three victims of the multi-car wreck were hospitalized, including the bus driver, for a variety of personal injuries.
A multi-vehicle accident or chain reaction crash commonly takes place during rush hour or in a highly congested area, and can originate from one crash. When a large vehicle like a school bus is involved, the results could be catastrophic. Buses do not contain safety features like air bags, so if a bus is occupied during an accident, the passengers and bus driver could sustain personal injuries or even fatalities.
