School Bus Crashes into Woodside Building

A number of individuals were reported injured in late December 2014, when a multi-vehicle crash sent a school bus into a Woodside, Queens building. According to reports, two cars and a school bus collided at the intersection of Woodside Avenue and 59th Street. The accident caused one vehicle to end up on the sidewalk and sent the school bus crashing into a building that houses a number of stores and restaurants. Reports indicate that children were onboard the school bus at the time of the crash.

In total, 17 people were injured, two of whom were seriously hurt. The injury victims included four adults, the school bus driver, a pizza shop employee, and the drivers of the livery and taxicab also involved — each suffered minor injuries. They were taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center. There were 15 children on the bus, all between the ages of 6 and 10. However, according to officials, they all refused medical attention.

For those injured in accidents such as this, it is important to document the accident. Take photos and videos, and immediately write down everything you remember about the accident. This will help insurance companies and attorneys to determine responsibility for the accident. As soon as possible, it is recommended that you consult an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your situation and determine what compensation you may be owed.

Automobile accidents happen every day. Victims from such accidents may be eligible to recover compensation for their injuries, lost work, and other damages.
