School bus accident injures dozens (2)

"It's not the only accident on Saturday caused by the rainy weather, which made the road slippery," she said.

Zhang Lihua, a 42-year-old woman whose daughter received a head injury, said that many of the children had similar injuries caused by hitting seat backs.

"My 7-year-old daughter was crying when I arrived at the hospital. She had never encountered such an accident.

"My daughter has no choice but to take the school bus since it is seven and a half kilometers from our home to the school," Zhang said. "We parents have to deal with our work every day and have no time to escort the children to school."

Hundreds of villagers petitioned the local government on Nov 4 over school bus safety, China National Radio reported on Sunday.

Lu refuted the report, saying there was no recorded petition earlier this month concerning school buses.

School bus safety has become a hot topic since an overloaded van carrying students collided with a truck in Gansu province on Nov 16, killing 21 people and leaving 43 injured.
