School buses are relatively safe vehicles. However, no vehicle is completely safe from being involved in a car crash on busy roadways. According to the latest crash data from the National Safety Council (NSC), a total of 108 people were killed in school bus crashes nationwide in 2021. That is up nearly 50 percent from a record low of 54 back in 2020. Nearly 70 percent of these deaths involved occupants of other vehicles, with bus passengers only making up an estimated 5 percent. However, roughly 30 percent of school bus injuries involved bus passengers, whereas those traveling in other vehicles made up approximately 53 percent.
