Any time students are involved in an accident it affects multiple families and stirs concern within the community. Recently, a car accident occurred in Wilmington that sent numerous people to the hospital. The collision occurred between a school bus transporting students from the Mosley Performance Learning Center and a car. After the car accident, all 13 students on the bus were sent to a local hospital to be examined for injuries.
Buses travel cross country, carrying dozens of passengers at a time. When traveling at high speeds and for long hours, these trips can be dangerous, even without considering maintenance issues. Before buying a bus ticket, or letting your college student take a commercial bus home for the weekend, be aware that some of these buses are not getting appropriate inspections, despite the record number of deadly crashes throughout the nation.
Parents in North Carolina and elsewhere worry about the safety of their children; it's what they do. And parents worry when they send their children away to college, because they are out of their sight. And while many college students make foolish mistakes, parents shouldn't have to worry that the school the students are enrolled at will put their safety at risk.
In Wilmington, North Carolina a woman was hospitalized after she was involved in an accident with a school bus carrying children from Codington Elementary School.
Car accidents can often occur out of nowhere, even when you are following traffic laws. A pleasant drive on a sunny Sunday afternoon can turn into a catastrophic nightmare. Such a sudden change can be both bewildering and exasperating. This was precisely the experience of several drivers yesterday at a Raleigh, North Carolina, intersection when they were involved in a serious car accident with a school bus.
