An investigation into this crash will look to provide insight into the cause of it. Investigators will likely be considering who had the right-of-way, whether or not the school bus allowed a minimum of a 3-foot space as it was passing by, and if any other traffic regulations were violated by either party. Despite how it occurred, we offer our warmest wishes of health and well-being to the victim.
If the investigation shows that there was any disregard of any laws on behalf of the school bus driver that resulted in this accident, the bicyclist will likely be able to obtain compensation from the bus company.
