Accident Involving Charter Bus in Pennsylvania

by | Sep 21, 2021 | Auto Accident, Personal Injury

There was a crash involving a charter bus in Schuykill County, Pennsylvania on September 19, 2021.  The crash occurred on Interstate 81, when the bus left the roadway after the driver lost control of it.  The bus went across Route 25, before ending up in the woods on the side of the roadway.  The bus had more than 30 high school kids on board as part of a church trip.  At least 10 passengers were taken to a local hospital for treatment.  The cause of the crash is still being investigated.  Our thoughts and prayers to those impacted by this tragedy.

There was a crash between a charter bus and an 18-wheeler near Oxford, Alabama on July 18, 2021. There was a deadly crash involving a charter bus in Greene County, Mississippi on February 13, 2021. There was a deadly crash involving a bus in Ethiopia on January 31, 2021, killing 24.  The accident followed the charter bus crash on January 22, 2021, when a tour bus in Arizona overturned and injured 45 passengers.  At least one person died in that accident.

Safety considerations must take precedence to ensure that anyone relying on charter transportation remains safe.  Safe charter companies must consider take necessary precautions to ensure that their busses do not put the lives of passengers at risk.  The risks of catastrophic injury should always be considered by safe vessel operators.  When charter operators fail to account for the known hazards of the industry catastrophic injuries or deaths can result.  Safe companies must hire and train only individuals who can carry out the work without putting at risk the lives of dozens of passengers.
