Bus accidents can be extremely dire as the large weight and sheer size of these vehicles can be a dangerous force. Accidents involving passenger vehicles can also impact many people at a time. Bus drivers must remember to use extreme caution, and other drivers must remember that large vehicles can have large blind spots and difficulty braking quickly.
On May 24, an MBTA bus driver and two passengers were transported to Massachusetts General Hospital with minor injuries after a car and bus collided on Interstate 93 southbound.
Officials in Charleston received a report that an Everett woman driving a 2016 BMW attempted to enter the HOV lane by crossing over rubber strips. This caused the bus already in the HOV lane to strike the driver’s side of the car. The accident occurred at 9 in the morning, and emergency personnel responded shortly afterwards. The HOV lane was shut down until about 10:55 a.m., and emergency personnel directed traffic around the area. The extent of the injuries is still being determined.
Car Accidents and Injuries
Bus accidents can cause serious injuries to victims. These vehicles are larger than the average car, and their size makes them more likely to cause severe damage. We urge all drivers to take special care to remain vigilant when driving by large vehicles like buses. Bus drivers must always remain vigilant and remember to check blind spots.
We at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman know how severe bus accidents can be and how they can negatively impact victim’s lives. As concerned members of our community, we urge all drivers to remain aware of their surroundings and drive attentively. However, we know that accidents can happen to even the safest drivers, so we are also here to help victims receive the help they need to recover.
