When parents allow their children to take the bus to and from school every day, they are placing an enormous amount of trust in that driver and anyone else involved with that type of transportation. However, parents also tend to understand that the vast majority of these trips are completed safely. Unfortunately, that’s not always what happens, and crashes are not always the fault of the bus driver. That’s what apparently occurred on Wednesday morning when a vehicle hit a school bus and injured five people in a Las Vegas car accident.
According to the authorities, this Las Vegas car accident occurred on Wednesday morning at approximately 7:40 a.m. The driver of a Honda sedan was moving in an eastbound direction on Summerlin Parkway near Anasazi Drive when it suddenly moved into oncoming traffic. As a result, the vehicle hit the front left side of a school bus. Four people on the school bus were injured as was the driver of the Honda. No additional information regarding the crash was provided.
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our thoughts and our hopes for those people who were injured in this Las Vegas car accident. We hope that everyone involved will be able to make a fast and full recovery. In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Nevada bus accidents. Every year, more than 500 buses of all types are involved in crashes, and nearly 150 of these accidents lead to at least one injury.
If the available information regarding this Las Vegas car accident is accurate, then it seems possible that the people on the bus who were injured could file a Nevada personal injury lawsuit against the driver of the sedan. If such a lawsuit is filed and it’s successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the plaintiffs for their losses.
