Law enforcement officials say a school bus accident resulted in two students receiving critical injuries after their bus and another vehicle collided on Northwest 14th street in Miami.
Police say the accident happened when the driver of a Honda Civic struck a school bus at the intersection of Northwest 14th Street and 12th Avenue in Miami.
According to reports the collision caused the bus to veer off the elevated section of the road and hit a utility pole before landing on the ground. Authorities say the school bus was packed with students when it smashed through the pole, nose first.
Authorities did not give an official statement saying why the Honda Civic driver lost control and say the incident is still under investigation as they look into the actual cause of the crash.
Paramedics and Fire Rescue arrived to the scene of the crash and reported that two students received life-threatening injuries and were airlifted to the nearest hospital. Paramedics administered on-site first aid to the remaining students and then took the injured victims to the hospital.
Witnesses say the students on the bus were screaming when rescue workers arrived at the scene. The driver of the bus sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was treated by EMS at the site of the crash.
Authorities confirm the crash remains an active investigation and say no other information has been released.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, comments on this crash. “Rear-end accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. Often, when a person is rear-ended they are completely taken off-guard and have not had an opportunity to brace for an impact. Rear-end accidents often lead to serious back and neck injuries. We hope that those involved receive the proper medical care.”
