Many other factors can cause a serious or catastrophic bus accident. For example, the sheer size and weight of the bus itself limits the speed in which a bus driver can stop. If a bus is caused to swerve, it may lose control and veer into oncoming traffic or off the road completely and could possibly overturn.
A crashing bus can eject passengers out of their seats, since few buses come equipped with seat belts. This scenario can obviously cause serious and life-threatening injuries to innocent passengers.
