Because of the large size and weight of most buses, the likelihood of an accident having much of an impact on its passengers is rather slim for lower speed accidents, and is more likely to harm the passengers of whatever vehicle struck or was struck by the bus. However, if there is an impact large enough to harm bus passengers, there can be many injuries due to the fact that they are no seat belts, or the possibility of the bus rolling over. If you are involved in a busing accident it is important to stay calm and remember to call the police. The police can both file a police report and take care of any other injured parties.
