Accident Involving School Bus Sends Three to the Hospital in Pitt County, North Carolina

November 14, 2019

PITT COUNTY, N.C.- writes that three people sustained injuries in a crash in Pitt County involving a school bus and a passenger vehicle. The collision took place this week early in the day during the morning commute.*

Firefighters say they responded to the crash on Frog Level Road and found the passenger vehicle at the back of the school bus. Responders provided care at the scene and sent two individuals from the bus and one person in the smaller vehicle to the hospital. 

The crash shut the roadway down for approximately 45 minutes.

School buses are designed to be seen and to be safe. The bright yellow buses are meant to get attention from drivers so that others are aware of their presence and in turn, avoid getting into collisions with them. When crashes between buses and smaller vehicles do occur, the people in the smaller car are more likely to suffer injuries.

According to statistics, children who ride the school bus are far safer than those who commute to and from school by other means. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, children's chances of safely arriving at school are 70 times higher when they take a school bus. These vehicles are subject to more regulations than any other type of vehicle and are protected by school bus specific traffic laws as well. The vehicles have rollover protections, high crush standards, and come with protective, shock-absorbing seating. While between four and six students on buses die in crashes each year, the most likely people to be injured in multiple vehicle collisions involving school buses are those traveling in another vehicle.
