According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, school buses are technically the safest vehicle on the road in the United States. That said, large trucks and buses were involved in nearly 4,500 fatal accidents in 2016, a 2 percent increase from 2015. Injuries resulting from accidents involving large trucks or buses decreased steadily from 102,000 in 2002 to 60,000 in 2009 but increased to 97,000 in 2015 and then again to 119,000 in 2016.

Bus Accident Injuries
Buses and trucks were involved in just over 32,000 fatal accidents in 2015, accounting for less than 12% of all fatal accidents on United States roadways. However buses alone were only involved in 257 fatal accidents, quite a low number when considering that the nearly 889 thousand buses registered in 2015 traveled a combined 16.2 billion miles. Intercity buses accounted for 32 deaths, transit & school buses accounted for 190 deaths, and all other types of buses accounted for 35 deaths.
Common Causes of Bus Accidents
There are dozens of common causes of bus accidents. Some accidents are caused by the negligence on behalf of the bus company or the bus driver. Some accidents are caused by bad weather, poor roadways and other drivers can be no fault on the bus company or the bus driver. Take a look at the most common causes of bus accident:
Bus driver fatigue
Violation of hours of service requirements
Alcohol and drug violations
