As Chandler school bus accident lawyers, we were unhappy to hear that a school bus and an SUV were involved in a collision on January 19, 2012 near McQueen and Queen Creek, according to Fox 10. There were two autistic children on the bus at the time, but thankfully, they were not injured. Both drivers, however, were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. We will hold them in our thoughts and prayers, and wish them a quick, full recovery.

Arizona School Bus Accident Statistics
There were 12,382 Arizona bus accidents in 2010 that resulted in 21 deaths and 2,150 injuries. Rear-end collisions totaled 40,371, the most out of all types of accidents, while angle collisions, such as when one driver turns in front of an oncoming vehicle, totaled 15,815 in 2010. Bus crashes can be very dangerous because the passengers often aren’t wearing seatbelts. They can be thrown against seats, other people, and windows, causing serious injuries.
