Lancaster, NY (April 30, 2021) – A fatal collision between a motorcycle and a school bus was reported at the intersection of Broadway and Cemetery Road in the town of Lancaster. It was reported at approximately 6:47 p.m. Wednesday evening, April 28th.
According to authorities, 60-year-old David Konsek, of Depew, was traveling west along Broadway on a motorcycle when a school bus turned in front of him off Cemetery Road. Konsek collided with the bus and was pinned underneath it as a result.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene moments later where Konsek was pronounced deceased. The driver of the school bus was reported to have cooperated with authorities and intoxication is not believed to be a factor.

Fatal Bus Accidents in New York
Between 1999 and 2002, around 325 buses were involved in accidents that resulted in fatal injuries. Approximately 39% of those collisions included a school bus. New York bus accidents are, unfortunately, frequent due to various factors such as poor maneuverability and prolonged stopping distance. The weight, size, and power of such vehicles often contribute to the regularity of these accidents, and it is absolutely essential to know your rights following a sudden crash.
After losing a loved one in a careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent New York accident by no fault of the victim, it may feel like no amount of compensation could make you feel complete again. While it is true that no financial restitution can ever fully make up for your losses, filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties can go a long way toward helping you find some semblance of peace again.
