A three-vehicle accident happened last month which involved a school bus for the special need students, a vehicle belonging to the Sheriff’s office and a Ram Dodge pickup.

Investigators analyzed the crash and they were convinced that the operator of the pickup who was Angela Brown, age 39 was driving at top speed along the highway. As she was near the highway traffic sign, she was unable to stop and rear ended a Fusion Ford that belonged
St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office. After slamming the Ford, the pickup continued running and in the process hit the rear of the school bus of St. Tammany Parish Public Schools that stopped at the traffic signal.

Brown was trapped inside her vehicle and was extricated by the firemen. Sustaining major injuries, she was transported from the scene by ambulance and later delivered by helicopter ambulance to an area hospital.
Out of the eight children in the bus, only one 12 year-0ld boy was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries. He was released from the hospital the same day.

Sheriff’s Office of St. Tammany Parish led the investigation since one of its vehicles was involved. The operator was tested for BAC and sample sent to the laboratory.

The driver of the school bus and the deputy in the police car were not injured.

Car Accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering in addition to economic damages.
