3 University of Michigan buses involved in crashes in one day

Some Michigan residents may have heard that earlier this month three University of Michigan buses were involved in motor vehicle accidents in the same day. This is quite unusual, according to The Michigan Daily, and two of these accidents did reportedly involve injuries.

One of the accidents involved a bus striking a bicyclist, and the extent of the victim's injuries is not clear. She initially refused medical attention but she felt sore the next day. The bus driver is reportedly at-fault in that accident, the victim told The Michigan Daily.

The details of the other two accidents are less clear; one was initially reported as a hit-and-run, but university officials later said the bus driver was not fleeing the scene, but was seeking a space to pull over.

It has been reported that as a result of one of the accidents a woman suffered a seizure and was transported to a hospital by an ambulance.

All of these accidents were under investigation by the university earlier this month. In many bus accident cases, it is important for victims to have a personal injury attorney perform an investigation on their behalf as well.

In some bus accident cases, the bus company is responsible in some way for the accident and as such it is important for a party other than the company to look into the case.

Bus accidents can often lead to catastrophic if not fatal injuries, so it is very important that bus drivers and bus companies abide by all regulations and the rules of the road in order to keep people safe.

It does not appear to have been reported whether any criminal charges, traffic citations or personal injury lawsuits have been filed in these University of Michigan bus accidents.
