  • Abstract:
    A school bus-related crash is a crash which involves, either directly or indirectly, a school bus-type vehicle, or a vehicle functioning as a school bus, transporting children to or from school or school-related activities. Since 1985, 1,478 people have died in school bus-related crashes - an average of 134 fatalities per year. Most of the people who lost their lives in those crashes (60 percent) were occupants of other vehicles involved. Since 1985, 300 school-age pedestrians (less than 19 years old) have died in school bus-related crashes. Half of all schoolage pedestrians killed in school bus-related crashes were between the ages of 5 and 7. Figure 1. shows occupant and pedestrian fatalities in school bus-related crashes, by age, 1985-1995. Of the tables, Table 1. shows fatalities in school bus-related crashes by time of day, 1985-1995; Table 2., occupant fatalities in school bus-related crashes by principal impact point on school bus vehicle, 1985-1995; Table 3., school-age pedestrians killed in school bus-related crashes by vehicle maneuver, 1985-1995; Table 4., school bus-related crashes involving occupant fatalities, 1985-1995; and Table 5. fatalities in school bus-related crashes, 1985-1995.
