Calendar icon October 28, 2020

Three people were injured, including a six-year-old student, in a school bus crash on October 21. The bus was transporting eight students to Little Britain Elementary School and was traveling eastbound on Route 207 in New Windsor when it was hit by a commercial tree service truck that had passed the double yellow line while going westbound, the new Windsor Police and Washingtonville Central School District said. 

The fire department and EMS team also responded to the scene, shortly before 8:30 a.m. According to the police they managed to extricate the bus and truck drivers and a female student who was sitting behind the bus driver. The three of them were taken to a hospital; the drivers were in critical condition and the student, although in a critical state, was stable.

According to the school district, the seven other students on the bus were able to walk off on their own. They were also taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Newburgh for observation. After their treatment, they were released. 

The police continue investigating the school bus crash. They said a third vehicle was involved in the collision but didn’t share any further information. For now, the identities of the injured victims aren’t shared with the public, though the injured girl’s uncle said that the girl was six-year-old and practiced yoga breaths to stay calm while the authorities were trying to free her from the scene.

Being injured in an accident can drastically change life as the person knows it. Facing medical treatments, recovery, medical fees and lost wages become the new reality. If you were involved in an accident in New York, besides seeking medical help, make sure you contact a car accident attorney to help you file for a compensation claim.

  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.
