Five victims became hurt in a head-on collision that took place in Camden County, New Jersey. The bus accident occurred on Friday morning around 5:45 am in Winslow Township, New Jersey at the intersection of Cross Keys Road and Oakland Avenue when an SUV slammed into the side of a NJ Transit bus. Both the bus driver and the one passenger were hospitalized for their injuries, and three other victims from the SUV sustained injuries. One victim remained trapped in one of the vehicles for an extended period of time after the head-on collision.
Bus passengers are at an increased risk of injury in the event of a bus accident. Due to the lack of safeguards such as airbags and adequate seat belts, passengers may sustain injuries or even become fatally injured in a crash. Buses bear an increased likelihood of rollovers because of their top-heavy construction, so even an experienced bus driver may be unable to avoid this type of hazard.
