We Are Messengers was involved in a horrific drunk driving bus accident a few days ago that resulted in the tragic death of a young man in a car they hit. They’re still in the middle of working through all the emotions, but Darren was willing to come in and share more of the story with us.

Alcohol is a substance that reduces the function of the brain, impairing thinking, reasoning and muscle coordination. All these abilities are essential to operating a vehicle safely. As alcohol levels rise in a person’s system, the negative effects on the central nervous system increase. Alcohol is absorbed directly through the walls of the stomach and small intestine. Then it passes into the bloodstream where it accumulates until it is metabolized by the liver. A person’s alcohol level is measured by the weight of the alcohol in a certain volume of blood. This is called Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC. At a BAC of .08 grams of alcohol per deciliter (g/dL) of blood, crash risk increases exponentially. Because of this risk, it’s illegal in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher, except in Utah where the BAC limit is .05, learn more about legal regulations with by checking with the experts, Leyba Defense PLLC Launches DUI Service In Seattle.

Each year, an average of 137 people are killed in school transportation-related crashes, and hundreds more are injured. When it comes to school bus safety, the safest place to be is actually on the bus. Motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists, make up 93% of the fatalities in these types of accidents each year. A bus accident lawsuit could be worth over $100,000 if the injuries are especially damaging and the bus driver was reckless and negligent. At times, bus accident lawsuits from the car accident lawyers may be valued over $250,000 if the damages are particularly severe and permanent.
Although most statistics we have involve school buses, we do know that of the about 34,000 fatal traffic accidents in 2016, 11.8% of those (a total of about 4,000) involved at least one bus or large truck, States and local school districts considering purchasing seat belts for large school buses should be aware of the results of this new NHTSA research report. Over the past 11 years, school buses annually have averaged about 26,000 crashes resulting in 10 deaths – 25 percent were drivers; 75 percent were passengers, as described in this company  accident reports.
