School bus collision in Jacksonville

Archives, Trucking Accidents

It was reported that a man driving a Toyota crashed into the back of a school bus when it was stopped for student pickup, injuring an adult and two students.  A student getting on the bus was hit by the bus door when the impact occurred.

The two students suffered minor injuries and were taken to a local hospital as a precautionary matter.  The driver of the car, however, was in critical condition and also taken to the hospital.

Rear-end accidents happen every day in Florida cities.  Florida Statutes, Section 316.0895—following too closely states, “The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow too closely to another motor vehicle than is reasonable and prudent.”  Florida law presumes that the driver who rear-ended the other vehicle is at fault unless proven otherwise.  Remember when on the road that inattentive and careless drivers causes rear-end accidents.  If you are involved in one, it would be best to get advice from an experienced Florida Truck Accident attorney who will investigate the accident for you.
