Thankfully, authorities do not believe any of the injuries in the most recent bus accident were serious, as all of the accident victims were sent home after receiving medical care at the hospital. Police say that they received a report of the most recent school bus crash at roughly 8:10 Thursday morning at the intersection of Neville and Groom Streets.
The accident occurred at an intersection controlled by a stop sign. Police believe the 46-year-old Perth Amboy man failed to stop while traveling north on Groom Street. The school bus then T-boned the van in the intersection, according to authorities. Police say that all 40 kids on the bus were shaken up in the accident.
Eight of the kids were taken to the emergency room after the crash. The additional 32 children were taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to authorities. The kids are elementary students, ranging from kindergarteners to fourth-graders.
The bus driver and an aide on the bus were injured. The two adults from the bus apparently suffered neck and back pain, which can cause significant problems for an accident victim. A passenger aboard the van also was injured. All three adults were treated and released from the hospital.
