Two Children Injured in Oklahoma School Bus Accident

By Car Accident Help on May 15, 2012

Two children were hospitalized with injuries after a traffic accident involving a Tulsa Public Schools bus. According to a KTUL news report, the injury crash occurred in the southbound lanes of Highway 75 near the on-ramp to the Interstate 44. The bus carrying 16 children and four adults from Anderson Elementary School was on its way to the Jewish Holocaust Museum when their bus rear-ended a semi truck. Two children were transported to an area hospital and three others were treated at the scene. It is not clear if the bus driver will be cited for the collision.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 96 crashes occurred in which at least one occupant of a school transportation vehicle died between 1996 and 2008. More than half of those crashes, about 59 percent, involved at least one other vehicle. In the 57 multi-vehicle crashes, 32 drivers and 40 passengers died. In 51 percent of all fatal school bus crashes, the principal point of impact was the front of the vehicle.

When a school bus crash occurs, it is important to determine which one of the parties was at fault. If the driver of the other vehicle was at-fault, he or she can be held liable for the injuries. If the school bus driver was at fault, then the driver, his or her employer, the bus company, and even the school district may be held liable.

If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, an experienced personal injury attorney in Oklahoma City at the Maples Law Firm can help you better understand your legal rights and options.
