The most common reason for bus crashes is when the driver of another motor vehicle acts negligently and causes a collision. Whether the driver of the other motor vehicle was distracted or not aware of their surroundings, the failure to drive safely falls on them. This can also occur when a driver is following a bus too closely when they are driving aggressively or speeding. Some other causes of bus crashes are:
- Failure to yield
- Failure to obey traffic laws and regulations
- Other motorists driving in areas that are restricted to buses only
However, it is not always the fault of another driver that a collision occurs. Sometimes, a bus accident can occur due to negligence on the part of the bus driver. This can happen for any number of reasons:
- Unfamiliar routes
- Rushed deadlines which could lead to speeding
- Negligent maintenance of the bus
- Fatigued drivers
