The injured children were taken to area hospitals for treatment of their injuries. Three of the injured children were air lifted and others were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
School buses are a widely used mode of transportation throughout the country transporting as many as 24 million children to school every day. School bus accident statistics reveal approximately 27 school aged children die in school bus accidents each year. School bus operators must adhere to strict guidelines when operating a bus. Violating those guidelines may result in dangerous circumstances which may lead to a bus accident that can injure passengers, pedestrians, and/or drivers and passengers in other vehicles.
Children are commonly injured between seven and eight o’clock in the morning (before school) or between the three and four in the afternoon (after school has ended).
Children injured by school buses have suffered serious, catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, head injuries, burn injuries, back and neck injuries, amputations, fractured bones, internal injuries, or death. Three of the children sustained life threatening injuries and a young girl lost her life. The eleven year old was a triplet and the daughter of a New Jersey State Trooper, sources said.
