Bus Driver Negligent in Fatal Pedestrian Accident

An investigation recently concluded that the bus driver was at fault in a Lakeland, Florida fatal pedestrian-bus accident in January 2011. A 14-year-old high school student was hit by the bus as she crossed the street. The bus approached the intersection making a left turn when the driver hit the teen. The girl was knocked to the ground and crushed by the rear wheels of the bus.

According to the investigation, the bus driver looked left, then right but failed to look left again before making the turn. This is when the child entered the crosswalk and was in the driver’s blind spot. The driver was cited for failing to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian, but her actions did not warrant criminal charges because the driver was not reckless. She may face fines and lose her license for up to a year.
