Oklahoma Bus Accident Causes Injuries
Ten people on an Oklahoma City bus and two occupants of an SUV were injured in an Oklahoma traffic accident when the two vehicles collided. According to a news report in NewsOK, the bus accident occurred at the intersection of Linwood Avenue and North Indiana Avenue in downtown Oklahoma City. Officials say the driver of the SUV ran a red light before crashing into the bus. The bus then hit a light pole and a tree in the median before striking a business on Linwood Boulevard. The passengers on the bus were thrown around and 10 sustained non-life-threatening injuries, as did the two occupants of the SUV.
Under Oklahoma Statute Title 47, Chapter 11, Article 2, Section 11-201 (a): “The driver of any vehicle shall obey the instructions of any official traffic-control device applicable thereto placed in accordance with the provisions of this act, unless otherwise directed by a traffic or police officer, subject to the exceptions granted the driver of an authorized emergency vehicle in this act.” Drivers who run through red lights or stop signs may be held liable for the damages they cause.
