A school bus accident with a tractor trailer occurred in South Harrison Township, New Jersey on Monday afternoon. Around 3:20 pm, the crash took place at the intersection of Ferrel Road and Monroeville Road after the school bus attempted to turn and collided with the truck. Fourteen students from Gloucester County Institute of Technology and the truck driver required medical attention for injuries ranging from lacerations to broken bones. The tractor trailer overturned after the school bus accident and was leaking diesel fuel.
Scenarios like the Gloucester County accident at intersections may lead to side-impact crashes or even head-on collisions and cause significant trauma to vehicle occupants. When two large vehicles that may be carrying multiple passengers collide, the results may be much more dire. Serious injuries including paralysis and traumatic brain injury, or fatalities may follow this type of accident.
