As experienced Arizona school bus accident attorneys, we were shocked by reports from the Tucson Citizen detailing the outcome of a crash that transpired on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The collision took place on SR-85 just south of I-10 when a pickup truck and a school bus crashed into each other. The impact of the collision caused the pickup truck to overturn. The man who was driving the truck was seriously injured and was moved to the hospital via life flight helicopter. There were no children on the school bus at the time the accident occurred and the driver did not report any injuries. Our thoughts are with the pickup truck driver as he heals in the hospital.
