    We are glad to hear that no one died in this bus accident. Each year, over 300 people die in fatal bus accidents, according to the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics. School buses were involved in nearly 40 percent of these accidents. Determining fault and assigning liability would be a complicated process since this accident involves multiple states, municipalities, private organizations, drivers and facilities. Hopefully the responsible parties can use the dashcam footage to find ways to prevent accidents like these in the future.

  2. It is fortunate there were no fatalities in this bus accident. The potential for deaths or catastrophic injuries in bus and truck accidents is enormous, and that is why there are additional laws and regulations applied to bus and truck drivers. I hope that the video provides further insight into the cause of this accident.
