On Wednesday afternoon, a school bus crash in Moorestown, Burlington County, New Jersey, injured several passengers. Over 20 passengers sustained personal injuries during the crash, which occurred around 3 pm when the school bus and another vehicle collided. Accident victims were taken to Kennedy Hospital in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, for treatment of their injuries.
Since school buses contain less safety equipment than other vehicles like cars, when accidents occur, the occupants could sustain catastrophic injuries or even fatalities. Drivers of school buses may be at fault if they engage in reckless driving, speeding, distracted driving, or are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
