There were two fatal accidents involving pupils and both occurred outside of the school bus. A 12-year old girl was struck as she was crossing the roadway to board the bus by a motorist approaching the bus from the front, and a five-year old boy was run over by the bus from which he had alighted. He had crossed the road-to his home but some papers blew out of his hand and he crawled under the bus to retrieve them. In 69 of the accidents, about 15 per cent of the total, one or more persons were injured. The injured included 163 pupils, 16 school bus drivers, and 38 others compared to 119, 11, and 36 respectively for the 1971-72 school year. The majority of the pupil injuries consisted of minor cuts and bruises.
