Often injuries occur in buses because they are not required to have seat belts or crash-resistant roofs like standard automobiles. With passengers not secured during a bus accident and not protected with a crash-resistant roof, they are more susceptible to injuries, particularly to the spinal cord and brain. In fact, 70 percent of deaths in these accidents are due to passengers being ejected from the bus.
