14 Injured in Connecticut School Bus Accident

Bus AccidentA school bus crash on May 28th in Greenwich has left 14 people injured, including the driver of the bus. The bus, which was carrying students from The Stanwich School, was operated by a 74-year-old driver who, while driving on Stanwich Road, swerved for reasons which have yet to be identified, causing the bus to hit a large tree on the side of the road.

The bus driver’s compartment saw the brunt of the impact, and the driver was taken to a nearby hospital in order to treat serious but non-life threatening injuries. Some students on the bus also suffered injuries, including broken bones in a few cases, and thirteen had to be taken to hospitals nearby in order to receive treatment for their injuries.

School bus accident in East Hartford leaves five injured

school busFour children and one other person – it is still unclear if he or she was an adult or child – were left injured after a school bus accident on I-84 this morning.

The accident occurred around 7:30 a.m. near the Connecticut Boulevard ramp. A press release revealed that the injuries for those involved were minor, and that damage to the school bus was also not severe.

The children were taken to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and the fifth injured person was transported to St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center. Both are located in Hartford.

The accident was cleared around 8:15 a.m. However, motorists still face delays on I-84 and Route 2.

Buses Collide on Connecticut’s I-95

Two buses collided on Interstate 95 in Stratford, Connecticut on Wednesday, July 3, 2013, leaving at least ten individuals injured. The collision occurred before 10 in the morning, and also involved a tractor trailer and another car. Several of those involved in the accident had to be taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, though none of the injuries were listed as serious.

Bus accidents are relatively rare, but when they do occur, the injuries that passengers suffer are often considerable. Because of a lack of safety features such as seat belts and airbags, passengers are more exposed to serious injury risks, even in seemingly minor accidents.

That’s why we are committed to helping injury victims fight for the compensation they need.
