This morning was the first day of school for Montgomery County Public School students. Unfortunately, for several high schoolers attending Winston Churchill High School, this morning was not a normal school day. Instead of driving straight to school on the bus, they were involved in an accident with another school bus headed to the same place. Luckily, only a few students suffered minor injuries and no one was seriously injured. One school bus rear-ended another school bus, and the exact cause of the crash is unknown at this time.
With school back in session for most students now, the risk of school bus accidents increases. School buses involve a significant safety risk for children because there are no seatbelts to protect them in the event of an accident. In addition, since school buses carry numerous students while driving, there is always a concern of several children getting injured if the bus is involved in an accident.
