Here we are talking about Rockland County School Bus Accident. Seven children and the bus driver were sent to local hospitals as a result of a school bus accident in Rockland County, which police are currently looking into.
On Thursday, North Southgate Drive in New Hempstead occurred before nine in the morning. There were roughly 22 persons on board the bus, including the 37-year-old driver.
According to authorities, the bus went off the road and ran into a tree and a telephone pole before slamming into two cars that were parked in a driveway. The force of the collision caused one of the cars to tip over.

Then it continued down a slope, colliding with many trees before slamming into a house’s corner and coming to a rest. The overturned car was seen leaning against the side of the bus in a NewsCopter 7 video.
The collision took place on a street where speed bumps were recently put in following years of complaints about buses cutting through neighborhoods at dangerous speeds.
According to Yossi Gestetner, a spokesperson of Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs, “the reason why so many buses utilize this roadway as a cut-through is because there is a lot of traffic in the morning if you drive along Union towards 306 or the other side toward 306.”
First responders had to rescue a number of the bus’s passengers who were trapped. The driver’s head wound was treated at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern after being transferred there.
Seven of the kids were being treated at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital as of 1:20 p.m. on Thursday, with one of them in a serious condition and the other six in fair health.
Ramapo Town Supervisor Michael Specht described the situation as “extremely unsettling and shocking.” “We are concerned about the children. We’re concerned for everyone’s security. I’m incredibly appreciative of our cops and all the first responders that arrived so swiftly.”
The remainder of the children were brought back to the school for evaluation. pon testing, the motorist, according to officials, showed no evidence of intoxication. The collision is being looked into by the Crash Investigation Unit of the Town of Ramapo Police Department.
