Fog a Factor in SR-20, S Tarke Rd School Bus Crash that Hospitalized 1 Adult, 2 Students

Sutter County, CA – On Thursday, February 22, 2024, a school bus was involved in a two-vehicle crash on foggy State Route 20 which resulted in one adult and two students being injured, according to KCRA.

Investigations indicate that the yellow Thomas school bus for the Meridian School District was carrying 19 students when, around 7:30 AM, it attempted a left turn from South Tarke Road onto State Route 20.

The bus driver was unable to see an approaching sedan as a result of thick fog, and it crashed into the bus, injuring one 11 and one 14-year-old student, who were transported to Adventist Health and Rideout Hospital. The sedan driver was also hospitalized.

Authorities have revealed that, at the time of the crash, the sedan driver was driving at a speed of 60 mph in a 55 mph zone and the school bus had its fog strobe and headlights active.

Personal Injury Claims

When the actions of reckless drivers lead to injuries for others, the cost of caring for those injuries should not fall upon their victims. Filing a claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver can offer compensation to help cover medical bills and time taken off of work to recover from injuries.

However, insurance companies always have it in their interests to deny or minimize all claims they receive, which is why the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can make all the difference.
