Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there were more than 2.3 million reported intersection-related crashes in 2008. Close to 7 percent of intersection-related crashes were caused by illegal maneuvers. The rules of the road do not always prevent accidents from taking place, said Perecman, an auto accident lawyer for over 30 years. Running red lights and failing to obey stop signs can lead to injuries that range from the minor, to major, and may involve serious injury or death. Six students on the school bus were non-verbal and autistic, CBS News reported. CBS reported that residents said accidents happen at the dangerous intersection all the time.
