Amherst, NY (October 22, 2023) – A bus crash reported on Friday in the Amherst area ended in injuries.
The incident occurred just after 7:40 a.m. on October 20.
According to reports, a pickup truck was trying to merge onto the eastbound lanes of Interstate 290 when it collided with a bus in the Sheridan area. The impact of the crash sent the bus, which was on its way to Beyond Support Network, to overturn and land in a ditch off the side of the roadway.
The Amherst Police Department responded to the scene and shut down the roadway, resulting in severe traffic delays.
Five students were injured as a result of the crash. The victims were transported to Oishei’s Children’s Hospital for treatment and evaluation.
A school aid on the bus also suffered injuries. The victim was transported to Erie County Medical Center, where they were admitted with serious injuries.
At this time, the crash is being investigated.
We hope all six victims hurt in this accident recover quickly.
Bus accidents can be especially devastating. Due to the fact that these vehicles carry a significant number of passengers, these incidents are more likely to be classified as mass casualty incidents. Every year, thousands of people die as a result of bus accidents, while tens of thousands more are left with injuries. Suffering an injury in a bus accident can be devastating. Far too often, victims are hospitalized with severe compound fractures, internal organ injuries, and other devastating injuries that require immediate and long-term care.
