A school bus with students onboard that was parked at the Maurice J. Moyer Charter Academy in Wilmington, Delaware was rear-ended by another school bus dropping off students the morning of November 17. According to ABC Local, 47 students from both buses were examined by paramedics. Nine students who complained of back and neck pain were taken to local hospitals for further treatment.
This school bus accident comes two weeks after another school bus accident in Delaware in which a bus crashed and flipped onto its side in Newcastle, injured thirty-seven students and a school aide.
Accidents involving students who are being transported for school-related events can be caused by distracted driving, inadequate vehicle maintenance, vehicle defects, poor road conditions, and other forms of negligence.
