Pennsylvania Charter Bus Crashes in Maryland, Leaving 30 Injured
A charter bus from Phoenixville, Pennsylvania crashed in Maryland, leaving 30 individuals injured. The accident, which left the charter bus overturned, occurred on Interstate 95 near Havre de Grace, Maryland on Monday morning around 9:30 am. One adult and one child sustained critical injuries, and a helicopter transported them to a local hospital for treatment. A total of 26 children, three chaperones, and one bus driver occupied the bus. Although the cause of the crash is unknown, a car was involved in the accident. Other passengers on the bus are being examined for personal injuries.
With the onset of warm spring weather, many schools plan class trips for their students, and use school or charter buses to transport them to their destinations. Unfortunately, this increases the number of possible bus accidents, which may be catastrophic. Some bus drivers may fail to use caution when operating a bus, and buses generally do not contain as much safety equipment as other vehicles, which may lead to potential fatalities.
