Tireless Pursuit Of Your Goals

It's always tragic when bus, truck or car accidents involve teens

Many Alabama high school parents know what it's like to send their young sons and daughters off on trips with other chaperones. School field trips, sporting events and beach trips are not uncommon among today's high school students. Some students also get the opportunity to travel abroad on mission trips. When bus, truck or car accidents occur en route, parents' lives are completely devastated in an instant if they learn their own sons or daughters were involved.

This is just what happened for families of dozens of young people and their adult supervisors on a recent Thursday afternoon. Dozens of travelers were riding a bus that was transporting them to an airport. Upon arrival, they were to board a plane headed for Africa.

Sadly, the plan never came to fruition due to a horrific accident that occurred on the way to meet their flight. The bus and another vehicle collided on the highway. Officials say the bus actually wound up on its roof upon impact, with the car trapped underneath it. A 17-year-old girl died in the crash. Estimates of how many others were injured range from 10 to more than 20, some in critical condition.

A local commissioner's wife and son were on the bus at the time. Thankfully, both escaped injury. Car accidents involving charter buses often result in catastrophic injuries due to the impact force of such massive vehicles. Alabama parents whose children are injured or killed in such tragedies may wish to speak with experienced personal injury attorneys if they believe another person's negligence was to blame.
