A Young Life bus headed from Bellevue to a summer camp in Oregon rolled over in rural central Oregon sending 6 to the hospital.
Young Life is a Christian youth organization and as such it is likely that those hospitalized are minors and their identities or additional details will likely not be released. While the extent to the injuries is still largely unknown deputies have revealed all of those hospitalized are expected to make a full recovery.
The group of students that were not injured in the crash were able to continue to the camp as the crash occurred near enough to the facility.
Group Bus/ Charter Bus Accidents and the Law
This accident quickly brings to mind the images and stories of the crash involving the University of Washington band bus as it traveled to Pullman thanksgiving weekend.
In that instance, the bus driver of the middle bus of a convoy was ticketed for driving at an unsafe speed resulting in the rollover and several hospitalizations.
Charter bus accidents can be complicated legally when it comes to liability, like we broke down in our blog post on the UW Band Bus Crash, there are five potential at fault parties in most charter bus accidents including the driver, other drivers, manufacturers or bus management companies all included.
Each case is unique and determining who the at fault party is in any individual case can require detailed and lengthy investigations and examinations of details of the crash. Experienced Bus Accident Attorneys like the team at Davis Law Group can help guide accident victims through this process and insure that they are made whole in every way they are entitled to.
