Germantown, NY – Students & Driver Hurt in School Bus Crash at Church Ave & Viewmont Rd

Between 1999 and 2002, more than 320 buses were involved in crashes that ultimately resulted in fatal injuries. Moreover, recent data have shown that about 39% of those collisions involved a school bus. New York bus accidents of any kind, however, are sadly common. Factors such as poor maneuverability and delayed stopping distance often play a part in these accidents, which are regularly made even worse when several children are involved.
