An accident between a school bus and a car in southwest Missouri left several students with minor injuries and required hospital attention for the drivers of both vehicles, according to an article in St. Louis Today.
The Missouri school bus collision between the car and the bus caused moderate injuries to both the bus’s driver and the driver of the car, according to Springfield, Missouri police officers. Both were transported to local hospitals for treatment, and both are expected to recover from their injuries.
The fifty students on the bus, third-graders at Marshfield Elementary School in Springfield, included several who were also taken to local emergency rooms for treatment. Several of them suffered minor injuries, which were treated before the students were released to their parents. The school district arranged for another bus to transport the remaining students back to the school, cutting short their planned visit to the Discovery Center.
Bus accidents are less common in Missouri than collisions between two cars, and accidents involving school buses are even less common. However, when a car collides with a school bus, serious injuries can occur both to those on the bus and those in the car. In a serious crash, some of these injuries may even be fatal.
Car accidents don’t always injure those in other cars. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and occupants of vehicles like buses may also suffer injury when a crash occurs.
