By John Cooper, Virginia Beach Injury Lawyer
As a personal injury lawyer in Virginia Beach, I am always alarmed at the number of accidents involving school buses in the Commonwealth.
I was disturbed to read about how a Virginia Beach school bus carrying children to a 4-H camp in Wakefield ran off the road and into a ditch in Southampton County at the end of last month.
The Virginian-Pilot reported three children were transported to Sentara Obici hospital in Suffolk for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
According to reports there were 37 people on board the bus. The sheriff’s office was called out to the 33000 block of General Mahone Blvd, which is also called U.S. 460.
The Pilot reported the 77-year-old driver told investigators she hit a bump and went off the right side of the road. She was later charged with failure to maintain control.
