A middle school bus accident turned deadly Monday in Orangeburg. The driver of another vehicle was killed and the school bus driver was taken to the hospital. Law enforcement have yet to release their finding of the cause of the fatal car accident.

Liability in School Bus Accidents

The most unfortunate part of a wreck like this is the number of people affected since a school bus holds dozens of children. There is much on line. Children injured may face 60+ years of needed medical attention due to disability and other severe injuries occurring in the crash. School bus crashes involving injury and death can be very complicated from a legal perspective. Often times the buses are not even owned by the school district and the drivers may be employees of a third party company. The school district owes a duty of safety to each and every family who places the trust of their children's transportation to them, but they may not be the only party to be held liable.
