NEW CASTLE, Delaware – A New Castle County school bus overturned on Wednesday morning on the I-295 northbound ramp to US Route 9.
The bus overturned around 7 in the morning. It was being driven by Arnold Johnson, 50.
Delaware River & Bay Authority police responded to the accident. There were 47 students onboard from Pencader High School and 32 sustained injuries. The students were taken to Christiana Hospital to be treated. They did not incur life-threatening wounds.
According to officials, the driver of the bus did not slow down enough when approaching the ramp and the bus thus flipped over.
The police are continuing an investigation on the incident and are yet to charge the driver with any infractions.
It is a miracle that after being involved in an overturned vehicle accident, the children did not suffer worse injuries. Those involved in the incident should contact a team of accident attorneys for representation. Whether the students were injured or not, they are still able to file a case. Accident attorneys will let the victims know what steps to take and will inform them of all their rights.
Accident attorneys also take it upon themselves to speak with police and any other parties who might have witnessed the accident as well as contact the victims’ insurance companies and doctors.
Without legal representation, accident victims could lose out on thousands of dollars in benefits. Call to schedule an appointment with a leading team of accident attorneys if you or a loved one have been involved in any type of accident.
