There was a crash involving a charter bus in Sangamon County, Illinois on March 11, 2022.  The crash occurred on Interstate 55 Friday morning when a bus lost control in snow and icy conditions on the roadway.  The bus overturned on the median.  At least twelve passengers were taken to a local hospital for medical treatment.

Unfortunately, accidents involving charter busses have become more and more prevalent.  Three passengers were injured in a crash involving a charter bus in Lake Nona, Florida on February 24, 2022.

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.  A responsible driver must drive at appropriate speeds based on the weather conditions.  Failing to do so can have catastrophic results.
