Traveling by public transportation is often a convenient way of commuting for many people. One of the drawbacks, however, is that the passengers are helpless to avoid any possible car accidents. One recent crash involving a Connecticut SEAT bus and car sent multiple people to area hospitals for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
According to the early reports, the bus driver was headed down state Route 32 in the through traffic lane. A car approaching from another direction purportedly attempted to complete a left-hand turn. The car was then struck by the bus. Police reported that the car was then dragged by the larger vehicle for an unspecified distance.
Both drivers were injured in the collision as were four of the 12 passengers on the bus. Connecticut officials said that several ambulance crews from the surrounding areas were summoned to the scene to treat and transport the injured to nearby medical centers. None of the details regarding the nature of the injuries or the conditions of the victims were included in the report.
The road on which the crash occurred was closed for several hours while officials conducted their investigation. It is unclear at this time whether any charges will be filed in connection with this wreck. Whenever travelers suffer serious injuries as a result of car accidents caused by another party, they are assured of the right to seek compensation for their monetary damages that these events often cause. An experienced attorney can provide assistance with obtaining accident reports and assembling a civil lawsuit against the parties deemed liable for their injuries and financial losses.
