A bus accident in East Los Angeles this morning, involving two buses, resulted in at least 13 people being transported to the hospital. The Los Angeles bus accident occurred on the 10 Freeway.
While details of the accident are still developing, ABC News reports that, the Los Angeles Fire Department says that a car left the roadway, hit a tree and went into traffic lanes. After that, a Greyhound bus on its way to Los Angeles struck a Foothill Transit commuter bus. The incident occurred at about 10:30am on the 10 Freeway near Soto Street.”
In the aftermath of the crash, 40 people were assessed for possible injuries, and 13 people were sent to hospitals in the area.
The exact details of the crash will continue to be investigated to determine why the driver of the car left the road, and if the two bus drivers were in any way negligent. Thankfully, no one was killed in this bus accident. Still, the driver of the car and, if found negligent, the two bus drivers as well as the bus companies, can all be held responsible for paying California personal injury claims to those harmed in the accident.
