West Milford New Jersey Student Hospitalized After Being Hit by School Bus


Posted on Oct 28, 2011

On Friday morning, September 23, 2011, a West Milford student was hit by a school bus. According to reports of the accident, the student who was hit is a 15-year-old boy in his sophomore year at West Milford High School. The boy has been identified as Jason Maxwell.

The accident occurred around 7:20 a.m. on Macopin Road near Westbrook Road. Fog may have complicated the boy's recovery. Authorities have said that the fog was too heavy to safely land a medical helicopter and an ambulance dispatched to the accident scene was involved in a crash of its own on the way to help the boy. Nobody was hurt in the ambulance accident and a second ambulance was sent to get the West Milford High School student to the hospital.

The student was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital and was reported in stable condition after the crash. The driver of the bus was taken to Chilton Memorial Hospital with chest pains. None of the 30 students on board the bus were reported injured.

This New Jersey bus accident remains under investigation. Our New Jersey accident lawyers extend our best wishes for a full and quick recovery to the student injured in this serious crash.
