In general, school buses are the safest vehicles for children to ride in to class, because of both their size and safety features. In fact, most of the people who die in school-bus crashes are drivers and passengers in other vehicles. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that approximately 19 children die in these accidents every year.
Many more suffer injuries. CBS Chicago reports that a public school-bus driver accidentally struck a metal beam while making a turn. The accident quickly became bizarre when the driver neglected to stop the bus or even call for emergency assistance.
