Students were injured after an 1-95 school bus crash in Weston Massachusetts. The accident caused the bus to crash through an Interstate 95 Guardrail and then the bus rolled onto its side. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries.
The bus was taking several students home to Boston after an early release day at Sudbury’s Ephraim Curtis Middle School. The crash occurred when the school bus collided with a Chevy Silverado pick up truck. The Bus driver, the bus monitor and all 22 students were able to get out of the bus under their own power. Weston Massachusetts fire and police department responded to the scene of the accident. The fire chief confirmed 10 students were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries. Other students and the driver were also taken to the hospital as a precaution. All the crash victims were released without being admitted as an in-patient. This eased many parents concerns of the welfare of their children.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation. No charges have been filed by either driver at this time. One of the students commented that the cause if the crash was due to the pick up truck swerving into the lane of the bus causing the impact to occur.
From the damage caused to the bus, all the students were extremely lucky to have survived the crash with only minor injuries. This crash could have been much worse with several life changing injuries.
