23 Students Injured in School Bus Accident

A school bus carrying 23 students flipped Friday morning in Havelock, North Carolina. All 23 students were taken to area hospitals, but authorities say that none were seriously injured.

The bus was taking the students to Roger Bell Elementary School when the driver apparently swerved to avoid hitting a dog in the road. The school bus then went into a ditch where it flipped onto its side.

School buses are still the safest way to transport students to and from school and, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, are the safest motor vehicles on the road. However, like most buses in the US, they do not contain safety belts. In accidents, such as this one, there is a good chance that students will be thrown off their seats and around the bus. The NHTSA told Congress in 2002 that cost and drawbacks of installing seatbelts in school buses outweigh any benefit they might have.

If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
