4-vehicle crash involves Austin school bus

An Austin Independent School District school bus was involved in a four-vehicle accident. Six people were injured in the wreck that happened on a service road next to Interstate 35.

The bus was carrying 31 students. Each student and the bus driver were evaluated at the accident as a precaution. None of the students on the bus was reported to be injured, nor was the bus driver.

According to authorities, a car struck the bus after i went out of its own lane, causing the bus to crash into a light pole. After striking two vans, the car then slammed into a tree. Two children and four adults were transported to local hospitals for treatment of unknown injuries.

There was no word on whether the driver of the car will face any charges in the accident or if he or she was one of the injured parties in the crash.

When a parent puts his or her children on a school bus, it is expected that the children will arrive at their destination safely. Even though there were no obvious injuries to the students at the scene, some injuries stemming from collisions are not immediately apparent and manifest days or even weeks later.

If your child is injured in a similar accident, you may have a claim against the bus driver, the driver who caused the accident and maybe even the school district. An attorney who is experienced in school bus accidents can provide you with more information about how to seek compensation for your child's medical bills, pain, suffering and more.
