Maryland trucking accidents: Truck versus bus crash injures 15

Police in Maryland are in the process of investigating a crash between a work truck and a school bus. A total of 15 people, mostly children, were injured in the wreck. According to current laws, when trucking accidents that involve injuries occur, the victims may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses.

On Tuesday, July 30, a school bus, occupied by 48 children and the driver, was traveling on River Road near Potomac when it was struck by a work truck. The crash reportedly occurred around 9 a.m. The details of this event are lacking, but it was reported that 14 of the 48 children suffered injuries and had to be transported to hospitals for treatment. The bus driver also suffered injuries in the wreck and was promptly seen by medical providers.

Law enforcement investigators have not released a cause for this collision. The crash is still under investigation. They have yet to say if the driver responsible is facing any charges. Per privacy laws, details of the victims' current conditions have also not been released.

Trucking accidents happen all of the time around the country. They are certainly fairly common occurrences in the state of Maryland. When such incidents do take place, it is okay for victims or their loved ones to want to seek relief for any resulting losses experienced. In this particular case, if truck driver negligence can be established, the bus driver and the parents of the injured children may be able to successfully achieve monetary damages through out-of-court negotiations or, if necessary, litigation.
