An Antelope Valley Transportation Authority bus collided with a pickup truck Monday, causing critical, but apparently not fatal, injuries to the driver of the truck. According to the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department, the driver of the pickup truck did not stop at a stop sign, which led to this Lancaster bus accident.
The Antelope Valley Times is reporting that three occupants of the bus had to be taken to the hospital for their injuries and the rest of the occupants did not need immediate hospital care. It does not appear that anyone on the bus suffered serious injuries in this bus crash.
The bus accident occurred on Avenue K and 70th Street East in Lancaster, California. Investigators with the Sheriff’s Department will have to determine if the driver of the bus did anything to contribute to causing this accident. As our personal injury law firm handles many accident injury cases in Lancaster, we know that often times vehicles are speeding on Avenue K in this area. The Sheriff’s Department also reported that it does not appear that alcohol or drugs played a part in the collision.
Knowing this area, it is possible that inadequate street lighting may have contributed to both parties potentially not seeing each other. This is another issue that will have to be examined by the Sheriff’s Department and by any personal injury attorney hired to investigate the cause of this pick up truck accident.
