School Bus Crashes Alarming Increase in St. Louis Metropolitan Area

The St. Louis area has seen a dramatic, alarming increase in the number of crashes involving school buses: 1) On May 4, a school bus crashed near Gray Summit, Missouri and 2) Today, a school bus carrying elementary students back from a field trip to the Illinois State Capital was involved in a crash with a tractor-trailer on I-55 near Litchfield, Illinois.

These recent school bus crashes may be the direct result of:

  • School bus driver negligence
  • School bus mechanical failures like brake or steering failures
  • Inadequate or insufficient school bus maintenance
  • School bus owner/operator negligence in the form of negligent hiring
  • School bus drivers that have no business driving our most precious commodities — our children.

Uncovering such negligence can be an expensive, daunting task, however, a swift, thorough investigation is often the only way to get to the bottom of these largely preventable crashes.
