In Long Island New York and other areas, all too often we hear of school bus accidents and fear the worst—a child being injured or killed due to the negligence of school bus drivers and other drivers on the road. It’s horrible when a negligent vehicle causes an accident involving a bus. Its even more frightening when the accident is caused by the school bus driver him/herself. On a small road in Eastport Long Island, one student suffered a hand injury and three others were taken to the hospital as a precaution when a mini-school bus skidded off of the road, hitting a pole and trees. It is odd that the vehicle skidded as there was no snow or ice on the ground at the time. While we cannot control the operation of the school buses by the drivers, it is very important to obey all New York traffic laws and take extra caution when approaching school buses that carry our most precious children!
