Vicksburg, MS (February 10, 2023) – A crash involving a truck and a school bus occurred in Vicksburg on February 8. According to information provided by police, the wreck happened on Highway 61 South.
Sources say the incident involved a truck with a trailer and a Vicksburg-Warren School District bus from Warrenton Elementary. The bus was entering 61 South from Grandview, headed south, when the truck entered its lane and crashed into it.
The truck driver pulled over and helped the bus driver and the children on board. Medics were observed at the scene, however, it remains unclear how many people were injured. One child was transported from the scene to an area hospital, according to local reports.
The scene was controlled by the Mississippi Highway Patrol, which was assisted by Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace and Warren County fire crews. At this time, police are still investigating the details of the incident.
We hope for the full recovery of those with injuries.
Mississippi Car Accidents
Due to buses being some of the largest vehicles on Mississippi roads, they can cause serious harm if they become involved in a traffic accident. On average, the United States sees approximately 60,000 bus-related collisions each year.
Buses are common for carrying passengers on American roadways. This means that they are known for getting people from point A to point B for a small fee. This also means that they are expected to keep their passengers from getting hurt in accidents. If you were involved in a crash with a bus and you believe that another person is at fault for your injuries, it is important that you get help from a trusted lawyer.
