School Bus Crash in Missouri Kills Two

Two buses loaded with students from a high school marching band were involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer truck this morning. The students were being carried to an amusement park when the bus accident occurred. The spokesman from the Missouri Department of Transportation has confirmed that there were two deaths, but it is not known if the victims were on one of the school buses. Dozens of others were injured.

The bus accident occurred on Interstate 44 near Gray Summit, Missouri, over 30 miles west of St. Louis. News footage shows one of the school buses sitting atop the back end of the semi that was traveling without a trailer. The second school bus appears to have rammed into the rear of the first school bus. The students apparently appear to be in good condition, but are being examined nonetheless.

School buses are mostly safe, but accidents involving them occur every year. There are no seatbelts on school buses, though there are occasionally efforts to have them installed via state or federal law. Though the details in the Missouri bus accident are far from clear right now, it is apparent from the still shots of the wreck that the students in the first bus probably didn't stay long in their seats after the collision.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced personal injury attorney in your area today.
