In Gainesville, Florida, an Alachua County school bus was recently involved in an automobile / bus accident. The school bus reportedly hydroplaned and then hit a tree. There were 41 children on the school bus at the time of the accident. A few children suffered minor personal injuries. It appears that a combination of the speed of the bus with the wet roads led to the crash. Fortunately, there were no serious personal injuries or wrongful deaths that resulted from this bus accident.
With students now back to school, all drivers including school bus drivers should pay close attention to traffic and road conditions. Child safety should be the primary mission of all school bus drivers and personnel. You can read more about this story at Gainesville, Florida Bus Accident – 41 Children on the School Bus.
