Motor vehicle accidents can be harmful. Sadly, such accidents can sometimes result in children suffering injuries. This can be seen in a motor vehicle accident that occurred this week in California.
The accident occurred on Monday in Fresno. Reportedly, that morning, a school bus was going west along McKinley Avenue. The school bus reportedly contained several children. Then, an SUV that was on an intersecting street allegedly failed to obey a stop sign and a collision occurred between the school bus and the SUV.
According to the Fresno Bee article which reported this story, the driver of the school bus, the driver of the SUV and two children who were passengers of the school bus suffered minor injuries in this motor vehicle accident. These four individuals were taken to a hospital after the crash.
This accident demonstrates a couple of things. First, it shows how motor vehicle accidents can lead to individuals suffering harm. Second, it shows how motor vehicle accidents can sometimes result in children sustaining injuries.
The fact that motor vehicle accidents can sometimes result in children getting hurt is one of the many reasons why it is very important for motorists to do everything they reasonably can to prevent motor vehicle accidents. This includes practicing attentive and responsible driving when out on the roads. It also includes following all relevant traffic laws (including those regarding stop signs) when driving.
One hopes that motor vehicle drivers in California do what they can to help keep the state’s roads safe.
