Five Victims Hospitalized In School Bus Crash In Martin County
Five people were rushed to the hospital in Martin County after a Lexus collided with a school bus, causing the bus to flip on top of another car in Martin County, officials and witnesses said.
The bus was heading down Sewall’s point Avenue near Hemlock Street in Palm City when the black Lexus ran a stop sign and hit it, a witness said. The bus ended up landing on top of an unoccupied black Honda.
A 45-year old man and his 42-year old co-worker helped to rescue the three traumatized children inside the bus.
“Two of the kids were crying,” the worker said. “I was banging on the door so they can open it but they were too scared to move. I flipped the handle, jumped in and took them out through the roof.”
“They were small kids, like 5 and 6 years old.”
The three children escaped unscathed but were taken to Delray Medical Center for observation, police said. The bus driver and assistant were transported to the same hospital for minor neck and back injuries.
The driver of the Lexus remained on scene. Witnesses said she didn’t have a license and her son was in the back seat.
She had not been charged at the time of this report, police said. The crash is still under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two vehicles, which ultimately, resulted in injuries to five people including three children. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
