Six children and one adult suffered an injury when a mini school bus crashed in Brooklyn last Friday. The accident occurred when the Bus was broadsided by a mustang while travelling northbound on Fourth Avenue in Park Slope. The impact of the crash flipped the bus onto it's side. Video of the accident shows the Mustang justr speed into the side of the bus; apparently not seening it. Fortunately, none of the six children suffered major injuries in the accident. The adult who was injured, however, was taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition. As a result, the injured adult may have grounds for a car accident lawsuit against the driver of the Mustang.
