Last night, a pregnant woman and several others were injured in an accident involving a Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus and another vehicle in the Jefferson Park district of Los Angeles. The collision occurred near West Adams Boulevard and 6th Avenue. While most passengers suffered minor injuries, the 25-year-old pregnant woman was listed in serious condition. The vehicle was damaged to the extent that firefighters had to use specialized hydraulic equipment to free its driver, who was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the crash, explains a California personal injury attorney.
Throughout the country, 24,474 vehicle occupants were killed and 2,011,000 injured in motor vehicle traffic accidents in 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most current crash data. That year, there were a total of 221 fatal and 10,000 injury traffic accidents involving buses. The deadliest times to drive were midnight to 3 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, with 1,024 and 1,072 fatal crashes, respectively.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the passengers and the driver who were injured in Jefferson Park last night.
