A New Jersey school bus accident occurred in Warren County on Wednesday, November 3, according to NJ.com. The bus crash occurred near Millbrook Village on Route 602 when the school bus’ brakes apparently failed, causing the vehicle to crash into another bus and then veer off the road. Between the two school buses, there were 90 occupants aboard, and 11 were taken to local hospitals, including one of the bus drivers.
It is unclear as to why the brakes of the first school bus failed, which ultimately caused the New Jersey bus crash. However, further investigation may conclude that the brakes were defective, in which case, may entitle parents and students aboard the buses to monetary compensation. Those injured in this accident would be well advised to contact an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney as soon as possible to learn about their rights.
