Students Hospitalized after Covington, GA Bus Accident

By Grant Law Office on November 26, 2012

Several people were injured in a Covington traffic accident involving a Newton County school bus that was transporting 34 students at the time of the collision. According to a news report in The Newton Citizen, the school bus accident occurred on Georgia Highway 212 near Oak hill Elementary School as the bus was traveling to Alcovy High School. Officials say a parent who had dropped off a student at the school pulled out in front of the school bus. The bus hit the vehicle before going into the other lane where it struck a second vehicle.

The 22-year-old female driver of the first vehicle has been charged with failing to yield while turning left. She was transported to the hospital after being ejected from her vehicle. A mother and child in the second vehicle, as well as three students on the bus, were hospitalized in with non-life-threatening injuries.

Failing to yield the right of way while turning left is a common cause of Georgia traffic accidents. Under Georgia law, all motorists who are turning left must yield the right of way to approaching vehicles. Drivers who fail to obey Georgia’s right-of-way laws can be held accountable for their actions.

Victims of multiple vehicle collisions often have it in their best interest to speak with a skilled personal injury lawyer. Determining liability for a crash can get complicated when multiple drivers and insurance companies get involved. A skilled lawyer will make sure that the rights and best interests of the injured victims are protected during every step of the process.
