Dean killed in car collision with Connecticut school bus

An investigation is continuing into a Connecticut crash that left a school dean dead on March 25. Authorities say that sun glare may have contributed to the fatal car accident. An inspection has shown that the victim's 2000 Saab did not have any mechanical defects, and several other factors have also been ruled out.

Authorities say that the 64-year-old woman died from blunt trauma suffered during the car accident. That victim was driving east at about 7:10 a.m. on March 25 when she was struck by a school bus. That bus struck the driver's side of the victim's vehicle, causing serious injury for the driver of the smaller car. The victim in this case was a veteran teacher at Kingswood Oxford School in Connecticut, having spent 39 years at that institution. She was a dean at the school.

The vehicle accident was so severe that the victim had to be extracted from her 2000 Saab. She was transported to local medical facilities in Farmington, where she was pronounced dead. The 23-year-old driver of the school bus was not injured in the wreck, and none of the 18 students aboard the bus suffered harm.

Authorities say that the school bus did not have any mechanical defects, and it does not appear that either driver was impaired. Further, the traffic signals at the intersection were fully functional at the time of the crash. Investigators are continuing to interview witnesses to gain more insight into the cause of the wreck.

Victims who have lost family members in commercial vehicle accidents may be entitled to financial compensation because of such car crashes. Reckless drivers should be held accountable for their negligence, especially when their carelessness leads to an untimely death. A Connecticut attorney may be able to provide additional information about victims' legal rights and options after such a serious car accident.
