Minivan collides with school bus in Moapa Valley

Posted by Neil Shouse | Feb 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

This morning a minivan crashed head-on with a Clark County School District bus on Route 169 near Lyman Street in Moapa Valley. Fortunately, the bus had no children on board. The school bus driver did not go to the hospital, but the minivan driver was airlifted to University Medical Center.

Authorities from the Nevada Highway Patrol have suggested that the minivan's "distracted driving" caused the collision. They believe the minivan crossed the road's center line and entered the school bus's path. A crash resulted in a fireball, and both vehicles appear totaled.

"Both the bus driver and the CCSD may have a negligence per se cause of action against the minivan driver," commented Las Vegas personal injury attorney Michael Becker. "All drivers have a duty to drive safely. If the bus driver and CCSD can show that the minivan driver's allegedly distracted driving caused the vehicle accident, they may be able to recover substantial compensatory and punitive damages."
