Travis Barker Hit by School Bus in Rare Accident
On July 13, 2018, Travis Barker was involved in a wreck in Calabasas. Allegedly, a school bus ran a red light, plowing into the side of the drummer’s Mercedes Benz G-Class, commonly called a G-Wagon.
Thankfully, no students were on board the bus and the Blink-182 member wasn’t seriously injured, nor were his passengers.
School Bus Accidents are Rare, T-Bone Accidents are Not.
Annually, around 130 people are killed in fatal school bus accidents. That’s a very low number. School Buses have a good track record because they are highly visible and one of the most regulated vehicles on the road.
However, bus drivers are human and mistakes will be made. A small distraction or driver error will result in a crash in the blink of an eye. According to Lulich.com, one of the most common types of car accidents is a T-Bone accident.
