Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 7-May-2013
A school bus accident in Fort Worth, involving a Fort Worth ISD bus sent 5 students aboard the bus to the hospital with injuries resulting from the collision on westbound I-30 Tuesday morning, officials reported.
According to police, the school was traveling from Bill J. Elliot Elementary for a field trip when the bus collided with a passenger vehicle. As many as 35 students were aboard the bus at the time of the Fort Worth accident near I-35.
Although five students were transported to Cook Children’s Medical Center, a 6th student was also treated for injuries caused by the crash on Interstate-30.
Students who did not sustain injuries in the bus accident were transported back to the elementary school, officials reported.
Bus operation requires stringent attention to the road as well as vital training that can help prepare drivers for a variety of situations and obstacles they face on the highways and interstates of Texas each day. But despite the proper training and screening required, not all companies perform proper screening or provide necessary training, leaving riders vulnerable to injuries resulting from preventable accidents. While not all bus accidents are the fault of drivers, proper training, drug screening and vehicle maintenance can help prevent some instances and protect occupants and other drivers from serious injuries.
