Causes of Bus Accidents
Buses can crash for many different reasons, including the following:
- Overly tired bus drivers
- Distracted bus drivers
- Impaired bus drivers
- Bus drivers who speed or otherwise violate traffic laws
- Negligent drivers of other vehicles
- Defective tires or bus parts
- Dangerous road hazards
- Dangerous placement of bus stops
Buses can collide with other vehicles or they can be involved in a single-vehicle crash. In fact, single-vehicle rollover accidents are particularly common with buses. Buses have a high center of gravity and a narrow base, which makes them highly susceptible to rollovers. These crashes can happen if a driver takes a turn too fast, hits a curb, if a tire blows out, or for other reasons. Because bus passengers rarely wear seat belts and have no airbag protection, they can suffer severe injuries in rollover crashes.
