My prayers go to this man, and luckily there were no children on the bus yet! I think a big recurring problem with these older buses is lack of seat belts. If more buses were actually equipped with them, arguably there would be fewer fatalities and injuries wouldn't be nearly as bad. SafeHarness is a portable seat belt designed for charter buses, but the makers also have a school bus model in the works. Currently, they need everyone's help spreading the word about the product and supporting their goal of getting it onto buses everywhere. You can do your part to help by visiting the link below and sharing with everyone you know.
