Packed School Bus Involved in Chain Reaction Crash in East Orange
A chain reaction crash in East Orange, New Jersey, on Wednesday afternoon, caused a packed school bus to smack into a guardrail. On Interstate 280, the multi-vehicle accident, involving three other vehicles, occurred before 4 pm. Several victims incurred minor personal injuries, and six students who occupied the school bus were brought to a local hospital for treatment.
When a school bus engages in an accident with another vehicle, the results could be dire. Due to the lack of safety features in a bus, occupants may be at-risk for developing personal injuries or fatalities in a crash. Although buses are used frequently for travel or commuting, their top-heavy construction could cause the bus to rollover and cause severe physical trauma for any parties involved.
