The BBC is reporting that at least sixteen school children died in a school bus crashed into a canal in Andhra Pradesh, India. Police report that another eighteen students were injured. The students were on their way home when the driver of the bus swerved to try to avoid a head on collision with a motorcycle. The bus apparently went off of a bridge into a canal. India is one of the most dangerous countries in the world from the standpoint of traffic fatalities. School bus safety varies considerably across the globe as this tragic incident illustrates.
