According to the Avondale Fire Department, a school bus was in a head-on crash with another car.
School Bus Accident
The head-on collision happened on McDowell Road west of 119th Avenue. The woman in the passenger car was heading west on McDowell. The school bus was heading east. The white passenger car drifted into oncoming traffic, colliding head-on with the school bus.
Both vehicles suffered front-end damage. The woman in the passenger car had to be extricated from her car. She only sustained minor injuries. There were about 10-15 students riding on the bus at the time of the accident. No one on the bus was injured. They were able to continue their ride to the school on a different school bus.
Reason for Accident
The police have ruled out impairment. The woman was cited for causing the accident.
Head-on accidents are often caused by negligence. “Negligence” means a person has behaved in a thoughtless or careless manner, and the result of that negligence has caused hard or injury to another person. Examples of negligent actions include: running a red light, speeding, failing to stop for a pedestrian, driving without lights at night, driving under the influence, or not paying attention because of a distraction like texting. If you have been involved in a car accident that you think was caused by negligence, you should immediately contact an attorney.
