2 hospitalized after car and school bus collide

When parents put their children on a school bus in Wisconsin, they likely don’t think twice about their safety. Buses are typically a safe way to transport students to and from school and to their various activities, but every now and then, accidents do occur that can lead to injuries for bus passengers.

This was the case for an auto accident that occurred recently in Grafton, Wisconsin. The bus was taking students home from a middle school just prior to 4:00 p.m. when a car that was attempting a right hand turn crashed into the bus.

There were 30 students aboard the bus at the time, one of which was transported to the hospital for treatment. The others who suffered minor injuries were treated and then released to their guardians at the scene. The driver of the car was also hospitalized with unknown injuries.

Another bus was following the first bus when the accident occurred. A student on the second bus said he saw the crash happen and noticed the car smoking for a while after the collision. The car came to rest underneath the bus; rescue crews had to extricate the driver out of the car.

Those who were injured in this accident may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney about their case. A lawyer can explain their options and help them determine the amount of compensation to which they may be entitled for their pain and suffering and any medical expenses they incurred as a result of the crash.
