Three School Buses Crash in North Carolina

Three school buses from Asheboro City Schools in North Carolina were involved in an accident Monday, December 20. As many as 38 eighth grade students suffered minor injuries and one was taken to the trauma unit, but that student's injury is also described as minor.

The bus accident occurred on US Highway 64 in Cary, North Carolina as the students were returning from a field trip to the North Carolina Museums of History and Natural Sciences.

According to police, the bus accident happened when one of the buses crashed into the back of another; that one then crashed into the bus in front of it. Two of the buses were unable to drive after the accident.

School bus accidents seem to occur with some frequency around the country, injuring and, in some cases, killing occupants. The federal government and state governments continue to neglect the obvious need for safety belts on buses. There are several reasons why there are not safety belts on buses, but they do protect people from being thrown around when an accident occurs.

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

North Carolina Student Struck and Killed by Car Driven by Teacher

An 18-year-old was struck by a car in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina on Wednesday, December 8, as he was walking to school. He died the next day. The car was reportedly driven by a teacher at the teen's school.

Parents and others believe this was an accident that was going to happen sooner or later because there is no crosswalk where the victim and others cross to get to the school, which is right across the street. Students say the traffic in that area is "crazy." According to both parents and students, there is a small "pedestrian crossing" sign in front of the school, but it is clearly not enough. A proper crosswalk is a quarter of a mile away from the school.

The teacher who hit the student has not been charged. It may be that this is a combination of traffic speed in an area where there is no decent crossing sign, and directly across the street from a place where scores of teens will be.

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