Bus crash in New York kills 6-year-old

A bus careened out of control in New York Tuesday night crashing into a home and killing a 6-year-old boy, police said.

The Nassau Inter-County Express bus was traveling on a Long Island roadway at about 9:30 p.m. when it swerved to try and avoid hitting a person. The bus driver hit the pedestrian, lost control of the bus and crashed into the front bedroom of the house, killing the boy, the Nassau County Police Department said.

    Very interesting article on bus accidents. If bus drivers were better trained there would be less bus accidents and that would save lives.The lawyers at Finz & Finz will continue to look at the issue of bus accidents and bus operator safety.
