A school bus was involved in an accident while on its way to school in Land O’ Lakes. No injuries were reported, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
According to school officials, the bus was transporting 11 students to Oakstead Elementary School at 9:30 a.m. when it was involved in the crash.
Another bus was sent to finish the bus route and pick up any students who were waiting to be taken to school.
Millions of students ride school buses every single school day, leaving millions of parents to trust that their children will arrive at their destinations safely. They trust that the bus driver transporting their child is appropriately licensed and trained and that the bus is in satisfactory working condition. But as we all know, mistakes happen, and sometimes these mistakes result in serious school bus accidents.
