Odenton School Bus Crash Leaves Man in Critical Condition

By Alpert Schreyer on April 26, 2012

A 25-year-old man was sent to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for life-threatening injuries and another was seriously injured after a car and school bus collided near an Odenton intersection during the morning of April 18. According to ABC 2 News, this Anne Arundel County crash occurred near the intersection of Telegraph Road and Betson Avenue around 6:40 am.

While the bus driver did not require medical attention at the scene of the accident, the two occupants of the other vehicle were seriously injured when the car reportedly slid under the bus. There were no occupants on the school bus other than the driver at the time, limiting the number of possible victims. While the cause of the Maryland commercial vehicle accident is currently unknown, Anne Arundel County officials are currently investigating the crash.

Bus accidents present a great danger due to the high number of people that could be affected by the crash and the serious nature of most collisions. Most school buses do not have seat belts, meaning that in the event of a crash passengers could be thrown from their seat, leading to serious injuries that would not normally occur. Additionally, the large size and heavy weight of the vehicles means that the impact of a crash on other vehicles or pedestrians involved would typically be greater than a crash involving a regular passenger vehicle.

Victims injured in a bus crash, both those inside and outside the vehicle, may suffer serious trauma that requires major medical attention and continued rehabilitation. As such, injury victims need financial compensation that can often only be found in a personal injury claim. The Anne Arundel bus accident injury lawyers at Alpert Schreyer can apply their years of experience in order to find you the best compensation possible.
