The Davison Township Police Department reports that a victim was taken to the hospital after a bus driver allegedly failed to stop at a yield sign resulting in a collision with the victim’s car. The bus was carrying elementary school children. The children and the bus driver were not injured in the accident. Police explain that this will most likely end up being a “stop sign related, failure to yield” issue. The victim was temporarily trapped inside the vehicle and the bus driver tried to pull off after the accident but the bus would not start. The Davison Community Schools have not decided whether to take disciplinary action against the bus driver and authorities do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.
Every day Michigan residents use school, public, and private buses for transportation to and from home. This makes accidents like the one described above surprising. While it may be hard to avoid accidents, it is possible for you to take a few steps you can take to help ensure that you and your loved ones are safe when traveling on a bus.
Bus accident victims deserve compensation for their injuries. Oftentimes the sheer size and speed of a bus means that bus accident victims sustain serious and life-altering injuries. Insurance will help pay for some of the costs of your injuries, however, you may still be left with significant costs.
