Spanish term or phrase: sesgo y creencias
Sesgo y creencias de ambos conductores, el conductor del bus no salió completamente de la vía y el conductor del camión pensó que el bus se iba a retirar. An accident was the result, but how to translate those two words? In this context woul lack of foresight on the part of both drivers be adequate?

prejudice and opinions or prejudice and beliefs
Explanation:
I think "lack of foresight" is a little too indifferent. Is it trying to put the point across that both drivers made a close-minded judgement on what they saw without seeing the whole picture? It is lack of foresight but without the judgemental and value connotations that the words "sesgos y creencias" carry.

subjective opinion etc


Explanation:
Bias refers to an INNATE PREDISPOSITION to believe something, so in inappropriate to refer to an accident or an incident that is part of an accident.

References to subjectivity, the subjective opinion of the driver, what the driver believed or understood, would all be more appropriate language for what seems to be an accident/insurance report

Lack of foresiught is an entirely different question altogether.
