Several people injured in 2 vehicle car accident

Parents throughout Pennsylvania trust that school buses will take their children to school and back home again safely. In many cases, school buses are the safest form of transportation for children. However, school buses are not immune to car accidents. When an accident occurs between a school bus and another vehicle, the results can be very serious.

Recently, in Lebanon County, a school bus accident occurred. According to reports, the crash occurred in north Londonderry Township near the intersection of Gravel Hill Road and Bindnagles Road at around 7:10 a.m.

It is unclear exactly what happened to cause the accident. However, news reports indicate that a bus and a car collided in the crash. The bus then hit a guardrail. At the time of the accident, 20 middle school and high school students were on the bus.

As a result of the accident, six individuals were injured. These individuals were taken to a local hospital to be evaluated. Of the six people injured, four were students. One student was taken to the hospital via an ambulance. The extent of the victims' injuries is unknown at this time.

When a negligent driver causes a serious car accident, that driver may be held responsible for damages to car accident victims. These damages can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other costs related to the accident. It is important that car accident victims understand their legal rights and take quick action to protect them. Often, specific evidence is required from the accident scene to prove negligence in a case. This evidence must be quickly preserved following a car accident.

Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Ms. Steinbacher was arrested after Williamsport City Police believed she switched seats with her boyfriend in order to avoid an arrest for DUI.
