2 People Injured in Bradenton Crash Involving School Bus

Emergency crews were called to the scene of a car accident involving a school bus and an SUV in Bradenton the morning of Friday, September 1. The accident occurred at approximately 7:15 a.m. near the intersection of Greyhawk Boulevard and State Route 64.

Police officers blocked off a right lane in the eastbound section of SR-64 for some time after the accident as they investigated the collision. Both drivers were reportedly injured and taken to Lakewood Ranch Hospital for treatment. The drivers were identified as a 16-year-old boy and a 65-year-old woman. There were fortunately no other injuries reported.

Accidents involving buses and public transportation

When a bus accident occurs, there may be complicating factors that make it difficult for injury victims to get the compensation they need. This is especially true when it comes to crashes involving school buses.

Most auto accident cases are relatively straight forward. A collision happens, one driver was at fault and the victim files a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

With bus accidents, liability is not as easy to determine. Rather than the bus driver, it’s usually the bus company or agency that’s liable for any injuries or property damage that occurred in a crash. When a school bus is involved, the liable party could be a school district or a bus company the district has contracted to manage student transportation. This is due to a legal principle known as “vicarious liability.”
