Collisions involving school buses are a serious matter, since injuries among children can result in life-threatening consequences. In fact, according to the NHTSA, of the 320,874 fatal more vehicle crashes from 2007 to 2016, 1,147 of those crashes were school-transportation-related. While the students mentioned above were reportedly not injured to a life-threatening degree, it’s important for drivers to stay alert when children are present on the road so as to avoid becoming a fatality.
