Several occupants sustained personal injuries in a school bus accident that occurred in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. On Friday morning, around 11:40 am, the crash took place on the New Jersey Turnpike when the bus crashed and then overturned into a ditch. No other vehicles were involved in the Cherry Hill school bus accident. Two adults and sixteen children from Plainfield, New Jersey who were headed to the Camden Aquarium for a class trip sustained mostly minor injuries and are expected to recover.
The tragic school bus accident in Mount Olive, New Jersey in May that fatally injured a student and teacher during a class trip spurred on a sharpened focus regarding the safety of school buses and the drivers who operate them. A new law mandating the implementation of lap and shoulder belts in every new school bus resulted from the crash. It is hoped that the belts will provide another layer of safety for bus occupants and reduce the incidence of injuries and fatalities during school bus accidents.
