Car accidents: 3 injured in crash involving school bus and 2 cars

When a school bus was involved in a recent accident in New Jersey that involved two passenger vehicles, it was fortunate that there were no children on the bus. However, occupants of cars are typically worse off in car accidents in which a big rig or bus is involved. This was also the case in this accident that sent three injured people to the hospital.

A reconstruction team examined the crash scene, and a preliminary accident report prepared by Bridgewater Police indicates that the accident occurred at about 3 p.m. on a recent Thursday afternoon. A male driver was eastbound in a school bus with no passengers when a female driver of a sedan heading north turned right and struck the school bus. The impact sent the bus veering into the lane of the vehicles heading west.

The bus then smashed into the driver's side of a westbound SUV. The driver of the SUV suffered critical injuries, and he was airlifted to a hospital. The bus driver and the driver of the car that first struck the bus were transported to the hospital by road for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Until the investigation into this accident is complete, determining each party's role will remain unclear. However, anyone who suffers the physical and financial consequences of another party's negligence in a car accident will be entitled to pursue a claim for damage recovery. A New Jersey personal injury attorney with experience in navigating lawsuits on behalf of victims of car accidents can provide useful counsel throughout the legal proceedings to ensure maximum compensation under applicable laws.
