Although injuries in that crash weren’t severe, officials worry that it’s only matter of time before something worse happens and are urging drivers to pay attention.

“We would just really, really appreciate it if folks would take an extra second,” Jackson said. “Those buses are big and yellow for a reason.”

According to McInnis, it is not uncommon to see 16 crashes involving school buses in a year, but it is surprising to see them so close together.
