Columbus, OH- Ten people including eight middle school student were sent the hospital late Thursday afternoon when a SUV collided head on with a school bus on the west side of town.
My Fox 28 reports that the accident occurred around 2:30 p.m. on East Livingston Ave. near the Walnut Ridge High School. Not many details regarding the accident have been make public, but police did say it was a head-on collision between and SUV and school bus.
Eight students on the bus were taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries. The driver of the bus and the driver of the SUV weren’t so lucky, they were both taken to a local hospital in stable condition, according to Fox 28.
The SUV and the school bus hit head-on but police would not say which driver was to blame for the collision.
Children on the bus who weren’t injured were loaded on another bus and taken to their destinations.
Everyone involved in this accident was fortunate that it wasn’t more serious. Head-on collision, especially ones involving larger vehicles, tend to be far more deadly and injurious than most other types of traffic collisions.
This one of the several school bus accidents this week all across the country. But only one ended up being deadly; that one occurred in Texas and killed two students. It would be logical to assume that school buses are more unsafe than a car, but that isn’t true. Only a very small fraction of school and commercial bus accidents end up being fatal. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Data from 2009 shows that out of the 18,315 fatal collisions that year there were only 212 fatal bus crashes.
