In Mississippi and other states, school buses travel streets, highways, and roadways in groups. In other words, school buses follow each other while heading out to field trips, school drop offs, and school pick ups. Since school buses often times travel the same routes in line, bus accidents often times involve more than one bus. In Ridgeland, Mississippi, two school buses operated by First Student, a bus company in many states, crashed into each other. The accident took place on U.S. 51 near the Trace Station Shopping Center. It was reported that Bus 27 rear ended Bus 52 which, in turn, crashed into a pick up truck. The children were from Highland Elementary School. Since some of the students complained of not feeling well or not feeling right, these students were transported to a local hospital.
Many bus accidents in Mississippi can be avoided with safer driving and due caution. Many accidents occur from driver inattention, driver distraction, and negligence. You can read more about this story at School Buses Crash in Ridgeland, Mississippi.
