School bus accidents are particularly worrisome because of the precious passengers aboard.
Recently, a school bus driver in Howard County lost control of their bus on the exit ramp from westbound Route 100 to northbound Route 29. The bus flipped onto its side, and a car traveling north on Route 29 struck the bus. Route 29 north was closed for about two hours.
There were numerous injuries as result of the accident.
The bus driver and an aide were taken to Howard County General Hospital with minor injuries. Two 15-year-old Mount Hebron High School students on the bus suffered minor injuries and were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital as a precaution. The driver of the other vehicle was also taken to Howard County General Hospital with minor injuries.
