3 Airlifted to Hospital after School Bus and Snowplow Collide in Savannah, NY

A school bus full of elementary school students collided with a snowplow on Route 31 in the Town of Savanna, 30 miles west of Syracuse. Authorities report that a Clyde-Savanna School District bus collided with the plow around 7:50 a.m. on Thursday. Several people were injured, including two students and the bus driver who were taken by helicopter to hospitals. It was reported that 22 students were on the bus. Eight ambulances and two helicopters were called to the scene according to emergency dispatchers.

School bus accidents claims, especially those involving collisions with municipal highway and emergency vehicles, require careful handling by skilled attorneys to address special rules and time-sensitive requirements involving notice, qualified immunity and no-fault provisions.

Dreyer Boyajian LLP acted as co-lead counsel in an October 1999 school bus accident involving multiple claimants that occurred in the Town of Schoharie, NY, when an Albany City School District bus was struck by a dump truck. In investigating the case, our firm worked closely with state and local officials, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Board. The matter was eventually settled favorably on behalf of all claimants.
