It’s been a bad month or two for school buses in the United States. Here are some of the recent incidents:
School Bus Rollover Accidents
School Bus Does A Flip
In Durango, Colorado, a school bus that was transporting 44 children did a complete roll over on Tuesday, November 17, 2015. Amazingly, only ten children suffered minor injuries … it could have been a whole lot worse.
School Bus Rolls Over in Kansas
In Hiawatha, Kansas, in the northeaster part of the state, a school bus rolled over while carrying around 20 students. Several kids were reported to be injured.
Other School Bus Accidents
Head on Collision With School Bus
In Lawrence County, Mississippi, a Toyota traveling northbound on Highway 27 collided with a school bus that was carrying 27 passengers.
School Buses Caught in Flood Water
A school district in Helotes, Texas, was forced to review it’s safety procedures recently after 3 of it’s school buses were caught in flash flooding, forcing the evacuation of around 20 students.
On the positive side, none of these mishaps seems to have resulted in any student death. School buses are still the safest vehicle for your kids to be in while out on the road.
