Most people are used to seeing school buses on the roads, and most people understand that school buses need to be given a wide berth in order to be able to properly maneuver. Most people also assume that school bus drivers are highly skilled. While this is true, they can also make mistakes. It’s premature to say that with regards to a Las Vegas car accident involving a school bus that occurred yesterday, but police are investigating the matter because the driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash was injured.
According to the authorities, this Las Vegas car accident occurred yesterday afternoon at approximately 2 p.m. An unidentified driver of a sedan collided with a school bus that was not carrying any children at the time near the intersection of Flamingo Road and Sandhill Boulevard. No cause for the crash was provided by the police, but the driver of the sedan was transported to the hospital.

If it turns out that the driver of the school bus was at fault for this crash, then it could lead to legal action being taken by the injured driver of the sedan. However, this step could involve some additional technicalities if the school district or the municipality need to be involved in the legal claim before a full-fledged Nevada personal injury lawsuit could be filed.
