A bus accident occurred in Norfolk, Virginia on Tuesday around 7:30 in the morning when a school bus that was traveling on I-64 flipped over. Allegedly, the bus overturned after the bus driver’s vision was impaired by sunlight, which caused for the vehicle to hit a wall on the interstate. As a result, about ten people were taken to receive medical attention for their injuries, which were all reported to be minor.
Reportedly, sun glare is a contributing factor in about 3,000 vehicle accidents every year. When driving through spots with a high sun glare level, it is best to reduce your speed in order to avoid collisions. Additionally, another way to avoid collisions in areas with a glare is to keep your windshield clean and smudge-free in order to have the clearest vision possible while driving.
