Residents of New Jersey are devastated to learn about a recent bus accident that left at least 20 people seeking treatment for their injuries.
Five-Bus Crash in Medford Injures at Least 20
On July 16, five school buses were traveling together carrying dozens of children from a summer camp when they unexpectedly collided. While investigators have not yet elaborated on the bus accident, it’s likely the buses collided with each other. Footage obtained from an ABC 6 helicopter revealed several of the buses with visible damage to the front and back ends. Eventually, four of the buses can be seen being towed from the scene.
Frightened students were examined by emergency medical staff at the scene of the crash. 67 of the students and ten adult staff members were cleared to return home while 24 individuals were instead transported to Virtua Voorhees and Virtua Mount Holly Hospitals with minor injuries. Among the injured are twenty students, two bus drivers and one summer camp staff member. Parents were reunited with their children back at the summer camp, and the summer camp promptly issued a statement thanking emergency personnel for their assistance.
