A FEW DAYS AGO, a school bus carrying ten youth and two adults was involved in an accident near Cache Creek. Fortunately, everyone survived; one person had critical, but non-life-threatening injuries. That is likely why the news did not reach some people: “When was that, I did not see it in the news,” someone said to me when I mentioned the topic of today’s column.
Tragedies involving lives lost get way more attention from the media and general public and we are quicker to inquire about what can be done to prevent any others from happening. More so when kids are affected.
That no one died is a good thing — but very far from good enough. People carry a lot of trauma after a crash. They also carry hidden health issues that can affect them for years to come.
