Catawba County, NC (December 18, 2018) – Yesterday afternoon, December 17, two vehicles collided with one another in a school bus accident that happened on Robinson Road.
Police arrived at the scene and found that the number 147 school bus and a four-door Hyundai sedan collided with one another on Robinson. One driver was transported to the hospital with a variety of injuries following the accident.
The district said that none of the students on the bus at the time were injured and the driver of the bus was not injured, either.
This was the second crash involving a school bus that took place in the Catawba Valley region yesterday. In another accident that day, a school bus overturned on the side of the roadway.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a serious accident involving a bus, you have many options under North Carolina injury law. We would like to extend our sincerest sympathies to those involved in this accident.
Bus Accident in North Carolina
In many of the cases involving school buses, the other driver is at fault, though this is not always the case. This is because, in a wide majority of these cases, a driver was not watching out for the school bus or children exiting the bus. These drivers are specifically trained to care for the students and others who utilize these services, which means that they are less likely to be involved in an accident by their own doing.
Being involved in one of these accidents can be a life-changing experience and require the assistance of a North Carolina car accident attorney who has handled cases involving school buses in the past. With over a decade of personal injury experience and case results achieved for a variety of past personal injury clients, we would like to stand by your side so that you can get started on working compensation that is owed to you.
