As parents, there are few situations more frightening than having your children hurt in an accident. If you’re not there to comfort them, the feelings can be even worse. All you want to know is that your kids are okay, that they’re in good hands. Well, several Indianapolis parents are incredibly unhappy with how local school officials handled a recent bus accident that sent several of their children to the hospital.
Last Wednesday, a Washington Irving Elementary School bus was hit head-on by another vehicle in the 800 block of North Rural Street. Of the sixteen students on the bus, eight were taken to Riley Hospital for Children to be treated for injuries. While none of the injuries are being described as serious, the major complaint by those kids’ parents is a lack of communication of behalf of the school’s officials.
One mother reported to IndyStar.com that she wasn’t aware of the crash until another parent told her. By the time she made it to the scene of the accident, her son had already been rushed to the hospital. Other parents that arrived on the scene had to be told by police whether or not their children were taken to the hospital or taken home by another bus.
It begs the questions. Exactly how long were school officials going to wait to alert parents that their children might have been seriously injured in an accident?
