The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash that included a Shawnee school bus.
A 2007 Bluebird school bus, operated by sixty-nine-year-old driver John Evans, from Elida, was driving eastbound on Wendell Avenue.
A 2011 Audi A5, operated by sixty-two-year-old Deborah McFarland from Lima, was stopped towards south on Lawnwood Drive at the intersection. The school bus was turning left onto Lawnwood Drive and did not manage to turn to the right portion of the roadway, hitting McFarland’s vehicle.
The school bus had thirty students on board. Thirteen students were taken by American Township Fire and EMS to Mercy Health-St. Rita’s Medical Center. None of the students had life-threatening injuries. All other involved parties in the accident did not want to have any medical treatments.
The drivers of the school bus and the car were wearing seat belts. Drugs or alcohol are excluded as factors for this accident.
Motor accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. Even if you drive carefully, sometimes it takes just a little distraction to cause a big crash.
Being involved in an accident can be quite challenging, even if you were not severely injured. The law gives you the right to file a lawsuit against the liable party and seek compensation for your damages.
But, such processes can be time-consuming, stressful, and complex. This is why you need the help of a car accident attorney who has long experience in the area.
Your car accident attorney will counsel you and guide you through the whole process. Fighting against insurance companies on your own might not be the easiest thing.
