Common Causes of Bus Accidents

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act, 156 fatal bus accidents occurred throughout the country in 2020. These crashes involved 86 transit buses, 46 school buses, and 9 intercity buses. Additionally, every year, hundreds of people are hospitalized because of injuries they sustain in bus accidents.

Bus accidents can be caused by various factors. Buses are much larger vehicles that are more difficult to maneuver, so driver error is a leading cause of bus accidents. However, the actions of other parties, such as pedestrians, cyclists, or other motorists can also cause bus accidents.

Some of the most common causes of bus accidents include:

  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Driver fatigue
  • Distractions
  • Impaired driving
  • Speeding
  • Violating traffic laws
  • Mechanical failure
  • Improper training for drivers
  • Negligent hiring
