Bus Crash Statistics

bus crash

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's bus crash statistics, in 2012 alone, 280 people were killed in bus crashes and another 23,000 were injured. In an effort to understand why so many bus crashes were occurring, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration studied 40 bus crashes and offered its conclusions on the causes of the crashes in a report to Congress.

The causes included: hours of service violations, inadequate surveillance by the driver, following too closely, brake failure, inattention, etc. In short, the report confirms the vast majority of bus accidents are preventable if the driver is provided a safe vehicle and then exercises good judgment. See a complete copy of the report here.
