A school bus accident involving five school buses took place in Medford Lakes, New Jersey on Monday afternoon. The crash occurred around 4:10 pm when the buses were transporting campers home from a Cherry Hill, New Jersey summer camp. Over 20 children and three adults sustained injuries after the five buses engaged in a crash on Tuckerton Road. The victims received treatment at two separate Virtua medical facilities after the Medford school bus accident.
Multi-vehicle accidents may lead to passengers and drivers incurring various injuries as well as potential fatalities. When the vehicles involved are large school buses like the Medford school bus accident, the results could be catastrophic due to the lack of safety features contained in them. In the past few months, school bus accidents such as the devastating Mount Olive, New Jersey fatal school bus crash in May have been the focus of lawmakers in creating more safety standards to protect students and adults riding school buses.
