Students and Bus Driver Injured After Churchville School Bus Crash
After a school bus crash in Churchville, Maryland, five students and the school bus driver sustained a range of personal injuries. Around 8:30 am, on Monday morning, a school bus that was traveling to the Churchville Elementary School rear-ended a tractor-trailer at the intersection of Route 136 and Route 22. The 41-year-old bus driver was cited for failure to control speed during the Churchville school bus crash. She went to the University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital for treatment of her injuries while the students were transported to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Hospital.
Commuters and students use buses daily to travel to school, work, or other places, and rely on them to safely transport them to their destinations. Unfortunately, some bus drivers may fail to operate the bus with care or may not receive enough training, which may adversely affect their driving skills when a serious incident like the Churchville school bus crash occurs. Buses do not contain the same level of safety features that other vehicles do, which may lead to injuries or even fatalities for bus occupants.
