High School Student Dies in Fatal School Bus Accident


A trip to a local robotics competition ended in tragedy for a group of Hartford, Connecticut high school students when a 16-year-old honor student was killed in a fatal school bus accident on the way to the competition.

The accident occurred after a Volvo, driven by a 16-year-old, collided with the bus on the highway. The bus veered off the road and fell 20 feet into a ravine. No one else, including the driver of the Volvo, was injured in the bus accident.

The cause of the accident has yet to be determined, although police believe that an unsafe lane change may have led to the collision. It is uncertain which vehicle was guilty of the driving infraction. The accident is also under investigation by the DMV; they are reviewing the mechanical records of the school bus.

Several people involved in the accident believe that if the school bus were equipped with seat belts, the student may have survived the accident. Local lawmakers are using this incident to spearhead an initiative to introduce legislation which would make seat belts mandatory for all state school buses.

If your loved one has been injured or suffered a wrongful death in a school bus accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. These claims are highly complex, and you will want to work with an experienced school bus accident attorney who understands the nuances of these cases.
