BALDWIN, NEW YORK (March 30, 2024) – Several people were injured when a school bus was involved in a Baldwin collision by Stratford Road and Grand Avenue.

Baldwin police officials are saying that the collision took place around 8:00 a.m. on Thursday. A school bus was involved in a collision with another vehicle under uncertain conditions.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victims. A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Baldwin School Bus Accidents

School buses are typically very safe and most of those seriously injured in crashes are pedestrians. According to Injury Facts, “From 2010 to 2019, about 69% of the deaths in school bus-related crashes were occupants of vehicles other than the school bus, and 17% were pedestrians. About 6% were school bus passengers, 5% were school bus drivers, and 3% were pedalcyclists.” Victims of school bus accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

The vast majority of school bus crashes are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. School buses have large blind spots, and many collisions take place because bus drivers are not paying attention to their blind spots. Left turns can be particularly hazardous. Any person who is injured in a school bus accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A bus accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
