Elderly Motorist Injured In Lake Elsinore Bus Accident

December 4, 2018 Injury Lawyer San Diego 0

Margaret Birch, 75, suffered serious injuries in a serious Lake Elsinore car accident that occurred on November 29, 2010, around 3:00 p.m. According to California Highway Patrol Officer Ron Thatcher, Birch pulled her minivan in front of a school bus when the collision occurred. The impact of the car crash was so strong that Birch’s car was pinned under the school bus.

Fortunately, all the 51 school students who were traveling in the bus escaped unhurt. Birch was immediately transported to Inland Valley Regional Medical Center in Wildomar to receive treatment for her leg injuries.

This accident is a good illustration of one of the main rules of the road: always watch out for traffic before entering an intersection or roadway. If you do not look for cross-traffic, you can possibly violate another motorist’s right of way and cause an accident. Even worse, that motorist may be driving a larger vehicle—such as a school bus—placing you and your passengers in danger of serious injury or even death.

We sincerely hope and pray that Birch did not suffer any life-threatening injuries in this bus accident.

A big rig versus bus accident closed Highway 12 on October 11, 2010, afternoon in Sacramento County. According to the California Highway Patrol, this fatal Sacramento interstate trucking accident involved two other vehicles: a bus and a Chevy Blazer SUV. Stockton CHP spokesman Angel Arceo said that this three vehicle accident occurred on State Route 12 just east of the Sacramento-San Joaquin County line and south of Isleton, approximately 400 miles from San Diego.

Arceo said that the big rig truck and a tractor trailer was traveling westbound when it encountered traffic, tried to slow down, and jackknifed. A transit bus carrying no passengers heading eastbound slammed into the big rig. The female drivers driving big rig and the transit bus suffered critical injuries and were transported to a nearby hospitals for treatment. The big rig truck driver was taken to John Muir hospital in the Bay Area, while the bus driver was transported to the UC Davis Medical Center.

The SUV involved in this truck accident, went down an embankment off the road, but fortunately no one suffered major injuries. This Sacramento truck accident forced closure of Highway 12 in both directions. The roadway reopened after 7:45 p.m.

This news report offers very few details about what caused this three vehicle crash. There are several unanswered questions here. Who caused the accident? Who was at fault? Did alcohol or drugs play a part? Was one of the drivers fatigued at the time of the crash? Was speed or distraction a factor? Was there an auto defect or mechanical malfunction that caused the driver to lose control?

Victims of negligent drivers often face considerable monetary adversities in addition to their physical injuries. In such cases like this one, the truck accident victims can seek compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and other related damages.

It would be in the best interest of the injured victims to seek assistance from a truck accident attorney in Sacramento County.

We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured victims sustain any life-threatening injuries.

A school bus accident on the Campo Indian reservation has left eleven children hurt, according to San Diego County’s authorities. State Fire Department spokesperson Mike Mohler said that the bus struck a light pole at approximately 8 a.m. causing the bus to crash. Mohler said that all the eleven children were immediately taken to a local hospital and ten out of them have been released after treating their moderate injuries.

According to the California Highway Patrol, this bus accident occurred in the parking lot of the reservation’s Golden Acorn casino. The reservation is located about forty miles south-east of Downtown San Diego.

Our office wishes for all the injured children to reach a full recovery. It is hard to imagine that the bus driver failed to pay such attention to his job that the bus struck a light pole. One would think that a driver charged with the safety of kids would be more careful while operating a vehicle.

We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured victims sustain any life-threatening injuries.

An unidentified pickup driver suffered serious injuries in an El Cerrito bus accident that occurred on April 13, 2011, around 6:32 p.m. on Cajalco Road just west of La Sierra Avenue, in Riverside County. According to the responding California Highway Patrol Officers, a pickup truck driver crashed his vehicle into a school bus carrying 32 students due to unknown reasons.

The injured pickup driver was immediately transported to Corona Regional Medical Center for medical treatment. The California Highway Patrol now must determine what made the pickup driver crash his truck into the school bus.

San Diego Bus Accident Injures Nine People

March 29, 2018 Injury Lawyer San Diego 0

Nine people were injured in a San Diego bus accident that occurred between a Metropolitan Transit System and a Mitsubishi Eclipse in the City Heights area of San Diego on March 24, 2010 around 3:40 p.m.

The car driver was apparently drunk and ran a red light at the University Avenue intersection with 37th Street. He then collided into the bus that was eastbound on the 37th Street. The car rammed into the bus just behind its front wheels which made the Eclipse spin. The drunk driver fled from the scene on foot. The collision caused back and neck pains to nine of the forty passengers.

Our office hopes for the young driver of the Eclipse is caught as soon as possible and prosecuted. He should be charged for such reckless behavior and for felony drunk driving causing injury. Driving while intoxicated is inexcusable, particularly when it causes serious injury.

We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured victims sustain any-life threatening injuries
