A school bus crash in Bridgeton, New Jersey occurred on Tuesday morning. Around 7:30 am, a car collided with the school bus on Pearl Street, which caused injuries for the driver of the car. It is unclear if any students occupied the bus at the time of the accident.
Oftentimes, bus accidents may result in serious injuries and potential fatalities for the driver and passengers as well as any other motorists involved in the collision. Since bus passengers are not required to wear seat belts, and buses do not carry air bags for protection in a crash, injuries sustained in this type of incident may be more severe than the average car accident. Due to the design of a bus, the vehicle tends to be top-heavy and prone to rolling over when in an accident.
