Boise, ID (May 6, 2024) – A bus driver was cited after a crash on Highway 55, according to reports released by officers on Monday, May 6, though the incident is under investigation by the Idaho State Police.

A bus and a passenger vehicle were involved in a two-vehicle collision along Highway 55 from Treasure Valley YMCA's camp, according to ISP troopers. The bus was carrying more than 20 campers and staff. The events leading up to the collision remain unknown, but at least one person was hospitalized as a result of the crash, and the driver was cited. No further details have been released in the interim, though the ISP's investigation into the accident is active and ongoing.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their complete recovery.

Boise, ID - Injuries Reported in Bus Collision on Hwy 55

Millions of buses operate within the United States, and approximately 160,000 or more people were injured in crashes involving large trucks or buses over the last year. Unsurprisingly, these collisions are typically much more serious, given that the average weight of a commercial vehicle is so much higher. For instance, a semi-truck exceeds 10,000 pounds.

As a result, large vehicles require more time to come to a complete stop than typical passenger vehicles, and because of a driver's blind spots, smaller vehicle motorists can get caught in the fray. If you're involved in a serious truck or bus accident, you will undoubtedly have numerous questions about the incident itself, the injuries sustained, the medical expenses incurred, and other related costs. Because bus and large commercial vehicle collisions are considerably more severe than the average vehicle crash, it is critical to retain the services of a trusted legal advocate in the aftermath. 

Thankfully, you can contact our bus accident attorneys at Attorneys of Idaho if you or a family member have been injured in a semi-truck collision.
