Children Injured in Maryland School Bus Accident

By Alpert Schreyer on October 9, 2013

Five students and a bus driver were injured in a school bus crash after the bus overturned off the side of a Maryland county road. The Baltimore Sun reports that 10 Pikesville Middle School students had to scramble out of the emergency exits of their school bus after the female driver lost control and the bus flipped. Five students and the driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries while five other students were picked up at the scene by their parents.

The bus, which did not have seatbelts for the children, rested on its left side nearly on its roof in a gully. The crash, which did not involve any other vehicles, occurred near Greenspring Avenue and Hillside Road. Officials are looking into what caused the driver to lose control. The driver will be tested for drugs and alcohol as part of the routine investigation. Investigators are hoping that the three cameras on board the school bus will provide some clues as to how the crash occurred.

School bus crashes can result in significant traumatic injuries including head injuries, back and neck injuries and broken bones. Since most school buses do not have seatbelts, there is the danger of the vehicle’s occupants getting ejected onto the roadway, especially if the bus overturns. In each case, it is important to look into whether the driver was impaired, distracted, speeding, or inattentive at the time of the crash.

If your child has been injured in a Maryland school bus crash, please remember that he or she has legal rights. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, the bus driver, his or her employer, the bus company, and even the school district or school board can be held liable for the injuries and damages caused. An experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer will be able to advise victims and their families regarding their legal rights and options in such cases.
