At least one child was injured in an Oklahoma crash involving a school bus carrying 25 students. According to News OK, the bus accident occurred near Hefner Road and Rockwell Avenue in Oklahoma City. Officials say the bus collided with a car but no other details were provided. One student complained of an injury and was transported to a nearby hospital. The injuries did not appear to be serious.

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, between the year 2000 and 2009, there were 371,104 fatal crashes in the United States. Of those accidents, only .34 percent was classified as school transportation accidents. During that same time period, 85 crashes occurred that involved at least one occupant of a school transportation vehicle suffering a fatal injury. An average of 19 school-age occupants of school vehicles are killed in traffic accidents each year.

Bus companies and school districts are legally required to provide the utmost level of care to students.
