A Mercedes collided into a school bus in a fatal rear-end collision on Roosevelt Boulevard in Philadelphia on Sunday. After the car crashed, it caught on fire and claimed the lives of the male driver and female passenger whose identities remain unknown to the public. Before the accident, the school bus driver had just dropped off passengers, so no children suffered personal injuries during the crash. The driver came out of the accident unscathed.
Due to the size and weight of a bus, when a car rear-ends or otherwise crashes into a bus, passengers may incur more severe personal injuries than if they simply crashed into another vehicle of the same size. Individuals occupying the front seats are most at risk for serious and fatal injuries like head trauma and spinal cord injuries.
