When You Least Expect It…
A disabled vehicle, with a drunk driver recently caused injuries to twenty-six people. What could have been a deadly combination only caused personal injury. Luckily no deaths for at least 26 people were reported.
Initially, a disabled car was left on a highway after striking two guardrails. The driver then exited and began walking believe it or not. A tractor-trailer seeing the car, which ended up perpendicular to the road, pulled over to offer assistance. A Trailways bus with 51 passengers then struck the tractor-trailer, pushing it and the vehicle with incredible force.
The driver of the vehicle was later charged for driving under the influence of alcohol.
The number of passengers using the bus transportation system is on the rise. Unfortunately, as the number of bus passengers increase, so does the number of injuries when busses are involved in these types of tragic accidents caused by wreckless DUI offenders.
Drivers of cars or busses hampered by fatigue or affected by being under the influence can cause major car crashes that can result in serious injury or death.
Additionally, bus maintenance has been under close scrutiny by the NTSB. Under-maintained busses have been the cause of numerous vehicle fatalities in the US.
