A driver slammed into the side of a school bus injuring seven yesterday. The crash occurred in the west central Illinois town of Nauvoo. Driver Martin Daley allegedly failed to yield for the school bus, hitting the passenger side rear axle of the bus according to reports. The seven injured all required hospitalization.
Now that most students are back in school, the crash highlights the need for drivers to be on the lookout for school buses. State law requires drivers to pay close attention to school buses and lookout for kids. Intersections are particularly dangerous because the side of the bus is exposed to oncoming traffic and serious injuries are possible.
