Students, coaches injured in serious accident

Performing other tasks while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle might seem innocent enough, but the possible repercussions can be drastic. An Indiana woman who apparently became careless behind the wheel caused a serious accident with a school bus. Several minors and adults were injured in the rollover wreck.

A high school basketball team was on its way to a semifinal game at the time of the accident. The driver of a smaller motor vehicle was driving in the left lane of a southbound road when she says that the lid to her drink popped off, spilling the contents onto her. When she attempted to grab the cup, she lost focus on the road and sideswiped the school bus in the adjoining right hand lane.

The school bus overturned and landed on its roof next to the road. In total, 21 student basketball players were injured, as were six other adults. All of the injured -- including the driver who caused the wreck and her passenger -- were transported to area hospitals for treatment. However, one of the adult coaches was injured seriously enough to require airlift transportation.

Careless actions at the wheel can have devastating and lifelong implications for victims of car accidents. Although the basketball game that the players were on their way too was postponed, it is unclear how the students' and coaches' injuries might affect not only their ability to play, but also their future medical, physical and emotional wellness. In such instances, residents of Indiana who have been injured in a serious accident can typically achieve necessary legal recourse through the successful completion of a personal injury claim filed against a driver believed to have been responsible.
