Causes of Bus Accident Injuries
Most bus accidents are unexpected and are the result of a variety of different reasons and causes. This was the case when a Greyhound bus crashed near Cabazon Outlets in California because of a “catastrophic” tire failure. The accident resulted in 13 hospitalized, one of whom suffered a major non-life-threatening injury.
A few of the more common causes of bus accidents include:
- A bus driver swerves or brakes abruptly to avoid hitting something.
- A pedestrian steps into a bus driver’s blind spot and is hit.
- A bus driver is distracted and crashes into something.
- A bus driver loses consciousness.
- Another vehicle crashes into a bus.
- A bus driver loses control of a bus.
- Lastly, a malfunctioning tire or other bus part results in an accident.
