About 10 injured in Detroit bus accident

It was very fortunate that no one was seriously injured earlier this week when a bus crashed on Detroit's west side. As many people have now heard, at around 8:05 a.m. Wednesday a Detroit Department of Transportation bus was driving south on Evergreen when it clipped a Ford Taurus that ran through a stop sign on Van Buren.

The bus driver reportedly lost control of the bus after clipping the Taurus, and ended up crashing into a tree before finally coming to a stop in a yard. The Detroit News Tribune reported that as many as 10 people were injured in the bus accident, but none of them seriously. CBS Detroit did report that several passengers were transported from the scene of the accident to a hospital.

Both the bus and the Taurus were damaged in the collision.

Alcohol was not considered to be involved in this accident, and it is unclear whether it remains under investigation.

Although witnesses have said that this accident was caused by the driver of the car cruising through a stop sign, it is often important to investigate further to learn whether there were any other contributing factors, and in this case whether the bus driver responded appropriately.

In a case like this, where luckily no one was seriously injured, many of the victims may still face high medical bills because even a rather simple trip to the hospital can be quite expensive. When things like x-rays, rehabilitation, follow-up visits, and time off work are required, things can really add up. Often, it is necessary to file a personal injury claim against the responsible party in an auto accident in order to obtain compensation for these expenses.
