A Saturn and a school bus carrying 24 students were recently involved in a head-on collision on Nov. 7 just outside of Easton, Pennsylvania. Three people were injured in the accident, and the two drivers had to be transported to a nearby hospital for the treatment of minor injuries. Those people injured in this auto accident through no fault of their own may be entitled to compensation for any damages, such as medical expenses, that resulted from the accident.
A student reportedly suffered a minor head injury in the accident, but it appears that the injury is not serious.
According to reports, the crash occurred shortly after 3 p.m., and the bus was full of students being transported from a nearby school that housed kids from kindergarten through eighth grade. At this point it’s not known how many children were on the bus, but emergency responders had to be called from other towns to help check out all the kids.
A father of one of the children on the bus, who was driving behind the bus at the time of the accident, said that the Saturn just came out of nowhere to cause the accident. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident, but it appears that police are not ready to assign blame to either driver just yet.
It’s unclear who was at fault in this accident. However, those injured may be able to seek compensation for their damages from the driver responsible.
