Oklahoma City Greyhound Bus and Street Sweeper Accident Injures 15

By Car Accident Help on January 6, 2012

Fifteen people were injured in an Oklahoma City car accident after a Greyhound bus collided with a street sweeper in the early morning on January 4, 2012. According to a news report in The Oklahoman, the injury collision occurred at Interstate 40 and Rockwell Avenue. Officials report that there were about 50 passengers on the bus. Troopers say the Greyhound bus was eastbound on the outside lane of the Interstate 40, but was attempting to change into the inside lane when it collided with the street sweeper.

According to the article, the bus driver did not see the street sweeper as she changed lanes. Thirteen people who were injured were treated and released from an area hospital. The bus driver suffered trunk and arm injuries. A 20-year-old bus passenger was hospitalized with a serious head injury. All of the injured victims are, thankfully, expected to survive.

Bus companies – whether they are public or private carriers – owe their passengers the utmost duty of care. This means that bus companies are responsible for the safe transportation of their passengers. In any bus accident case, several factors could come into play. Was the bus driver drunk or buzzed at the time of the crash? Was he or she speeding? Was the driver distracted or inattentive? Did fatigue play a part? In cases where a negligent bus driver is involved, injured victims can seek compensation for injuries and damages from the bus company.

Injured victims of bus accidents would be well advised to contact an experienced Oklahoma City motor vehicle accident lawyer who will help ensure that their rights are protected and that they receive fair and full compensation for all damages. Victims can seek compensation from the at-fault party for damages such as medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
