According to an article in the Boston Herald, a bus crash last Friday injured 16 University of Massachusetts at Amherst students who were en route to Canada for a ski trip. The bus driver sustained head injuries and some internal injuries but was listed in stable condition at Darthmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center on Monday.
State police said the bus driver apparently had a pre-existing heart condition, but it’s unclear if that was a factor in Friday’s bus crash. They added that the driver has shown no signs of taking evasive action. They are still investigating the bus accident.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident, there are several parties who can be found at fault for injuries from a bus accident. These include the bus company, bus maintenance companies, bus manufacturers, the bus driver, and drivers of other vehicles.
