School bus driver faces traffic violations in New Jersey

It was anything but the average school day for one bus driver and a bus full of kids. The driver of the bus faces traffic violations after an accident that sent nine people to the hospital. The New Jersey driver is likely preparing a defense against charges that he failed to properly execute his responsibility on the job. 

The incident occurred Tuesday, Oct. 24 in the evening hours. The mini school bus was headed north with six students in tow, in addition to the bus driver. The driver allegedly missed a stop sign, which caused the chain of events that led to the crash. 

After supposedly failing to stop at the stop sign, the bus then contacted another vehicle and went out of control. A second vehicle was hit by the bus, and then the bus crashed into a tree. The six students and two drivers were transported to the hospital. Only minor injuries were reported. The bus driver suffered a head injury, and it was reported that the rest of the individuals only suffered bumps and bruises. 

The New Jersey driver was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign. Authorities are still conducting an investigation, and more charges may potentially be filed against the driver. If he is found to be negligent, the man may face serious consequences, including the loss of his employment. In that case, he may wish to defend himself against any erroneous charges. Many people in a similar situation with traffic violations choose to use the services of a criminal defense attorney.
