1 injured in car accident involving empty school bus

One person was injured in a car accident involving an empty school bus late in the month of August. The accident occurred on Aug. 30 in Huntersville, North Carolina. The car wound up underneath the rear of the school bus, which did not have any students on it at the time of the accident.

The force of the crash was so strong that it crushed the front half of the car, which was a Volvo. The driver of the Volvo had to be extricated by firefighters from the Huntersville Fire Department. The accident occurred at the intersection of Old Statesville Road and Stumptown Road.

Even though the bus was void of students, schools in the area had just returned from the summer break on Aug. 28. The driver of the bus was not injured, but the Volvo driver had to be taken to Novant Hospital. One report described the driver's injuries as potentially life-threatening.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the local authorities. Police have not said whether or not alcohol could have been a factor. The driver of the Volvo has not yet been identified. Authorities have also declined to mention if any charges would come from the accident.

If you have suffered an injury of any degree in a Wilson car accident, speaking with a personal injury attorney can help you understand the next steps. You might be eligible for compensation due to the physical injuries you have suffered. Compensation is also possible for the pain and suffering and other damages associated with a car accident.
