by | Sep 12, 2023 | Car Accidents | 0 comments

Saginaw, MI (September 12, 2023) – On Monday afternoon, a school bus from Chesaning Union Schools was involved in an accident that sent two students to the hospital.

The incident occurred on East Road near the Dollar General in Burt at approximately 4:00 p.m. Deputies with the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Office reported that a school bus collided with a northbound Mitsubishi Outlander on East Road. The school bus did not stop in time for the Outlander to make a left turn into the Dollar General.

According to the police, there were 29 children on the bus, and two of them ended up at Covenant Medical Center. Their injuries do not seem to be life-threatening, police said. It’s unclear if either of the drivers was hurt.

The police closed off the area while they conducted their investigation, which is currently continuing.

Our thoughts and best wishes for a full recovery go out to the injured children and their family members.

Serious Vehicle Crashes in Michigan

Saginaw, MI - Two Kids Hurt in School Bus Wreck on East RdMost motorists are aware of the dangers inherent in operating a motor vehicle, but no one plans on ever having to deal with the emotional fallout of an accident. That said, given the fact that Wayne County alone records roughly 44,000 accidents every year, as documented by the Michigan Traffic Crash Reporting System, the lion’s share of drivers throughout the Great Lakes State will likely experience the aftereffects of a crash at some point.

However, victims should know that they have the option of filing a personal injury claim in order to get justice and fair compensation for their losses. In fact, you may be eligible for recompense to cover your crash-related damages if you can show that another person or party’s negligence had a role in causing your accident.

Following an accident, here are some basic things to remember in order to safeguard your legal rights and have the best chance of bringing a successful claim for your injuries:

  1. Don’t wait to report the accident to the authorities. You should immediately report your crash to the local police or sheriff’s department by calling 911.
  2. Gather as much information as possible by conducting your own investigation of the accident site.
  3. Please get immediate medical attention if you feel you are injured. It may be hard to tell how seriously hurt someone is immediately after an accident, so it’s best to be checked out even if you don’t think you’ve been wounded or you think your injuries are relatively mild.
  4. Get in touch with your insurance company. Seek medical attention for your wounds, and then contact your insurance company with the relevant details. In the same vein, be as clear and succinct as possible about the accident and your injuries if the other driver’s insurance company calls you.
  5. Find a good local lawyer. After hearing the details of your case, an attorney will be able to provide you with an honest appraisal of your legal options moving forward.
