4 children hospitalized after bus accident on Interstate 64

When you send your children to school, you want to know they'll be safe. Unfortunately, even if a bus driver is as safe as possible, you can't always account for the actions of others. Distracted, drunk and negligent drivers put everyone in danger, including those on school buses.

The good news is that in most cases, bus accidents aren't fatal. Thanks to the use of seat belts and compartmentalization on buses, children are unlikely to face some of the more severe injuries you might see in a passenger-vehicle accident. On top of that, the size of a bus helps reduce risk.

Thankfully, this accident wasn't fatal to anyone involved. In Louisville, Kentucky, four children had to be treated at the hospital following a collision. They were on their school bus on Interstate 64 when a vehicle struck the bus.

This interstate is already congested, and it's prone to crashes. It's not clear exactly what happened, but an initial crash between two cars ended up leading to the involvement of the school bus. Luckily, the children did not appear to suffer serious injuries and should be fine. At least one of the adults involved in the collision also had to be treated.

Crashes like this may make you furious as a parent, and you have every right to be worried. You can pursue compensation from the person responsible, so your child's medical bills can be covered. Additionally, you may be able to obtain compensation for therapy, expenses and other needs your child has following a crash that leads to injuries.
