James E. Ballidis
Shortly before noon, a bus carrying more than twenty-four teenagers collided with a car on Highway 189 near Lake Gregory, the impact sending it down a snowy embankment and into several trees. One person was killed and twenty-four were injured in the bus crash. Authorities have set up a triage area near the accident scene, while seriously injured passengers are being air lifted to nearby hospitals, explains a California personal injury lawyer.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recently released accident statistics, 24,474 vehicle occupants were killed and 2,011,000 injured in traffic accidents in 2009. Bus crashes accounted for 221 of the fatalities and 10,000 of the injuries, with 139 of the fatal and 9,000 of the injury accidents attributable to a collision between a bus and another motor vehicle.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the person who was killed in the bus crash near Lake Gregory today. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the twenty-four people who were injured.
