No parent wants to think that a child on a school bus is in more danger than any other vehicle on the road. Usually they are just as safe as if they were being driven to school by a parent. One recent accident involving a school bus 50 miles east of Durham, however, probably has some parents thinking about other ways to get their kids to school.
The bus with eight students was on a rural road headed for Nashville Elementary School around 7:30 a.m. when the driver lost control of his vehicle. None of the students in the overturned bus suffered serious injuries.
