Marysville, Michigan, man clipped by bus, thrown into crane

A very odd bus accident took place in Warren, Michigan, today, leaving a Marysville man with brain injuries.

The accident took place on a construction site on Ryan Road, while a worker was carrying a 36-foot pole and walking parallel to the street, about 15 feet from traffic, according to the Detroit Free Press. For an unknown reason, the man turned and caused part of the pole to enter into oncoming traffic. At that point, a bus clipped the pole, causing the man to be thrown into the air where he then crashed into a crane that was 10 feet away.

The construction worker was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Although he was wearing a helmet, it was not sufficient to protect himself from a brain injury, according to the news report.

The bus was carrying four passengers at the time of the accident, and none were injured.

An investigation will likely now take place to determine which parties may be at fault for this terrible accident. When a car accident happens in or near a construction site, there are many factors to review. The driver, the managers of the construction site and the city are among those that will be investigated to learn whether they were in compliance with all applicable safety laws or whether negligence existed.

Once a case is fully investigated, it is possible for an injured worker to pursue compensation from any parties whose error played a part in the construction site car accident. This compensation can cover medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering among other things related to the worksite accident.
