Driver Inexperience May Have Played A Role In School Bus Crash

Driving a car, while second-nature to many Ohioans, involves many movements and spatial judgments. It takes time to develop safe driving skills and, unfortunately, many young drivers find themselves in dangerous crashes first.

A recent school bus accident that injured several children may be an example of the crashes that can happen when a teenage driver makes the wrong decision. The crash happened when a 16-year-old failed to yield for a school bus in Logan County. Of the 46 children on board, 9 required hospital treatment for undisclosed injuries. One of the driver's two teenage passengers also suffered injuries. 

Sadly, scenarios like this are all too common. The fact that the teenage driver had several passengers in the car could be an indication that distraction also played a role. Driver inexperience and social distractions are a dangerous combination.

Despite youth and inexperience, teenage drivers are held to the same standards of road safety as other motorists. This means that victims of teenage drivers are entitled to recover compensation when inexperience played a role in a car accident.
