Greyhound Buses Sued After Serious Wreck on PA Highway

Although we may think more commonly about car and truck accidents, bus accidents are not uncommon, either.  Recently, Greyhound was sued for injuries its passengers sustained while riding one of their buses from New York City to Cleveland.  According to news reports, the bus crashed after the driver fell asleep at the wheel.  One of the 43 passengers died and many sustained severe injuries.  One passenger recently received a payment of $27M from the bus company due to the severity of his injuries, which included an amputation of one of his legs and over 30 surgeries related to other injuries.

School Bus Crashes As A Result of Truck Driver

In Perry County, PA a school bus crashed.  The bus driver was attempting to avoid a collision with a large truck, which crossed the opposing lane of travel into the bus's lane.  The bus was carrying almost 40 students from the local schools.  Over a quarter of the students were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.  The truck driver was cited for operation of vehicle without certificate of inspection, as well as driving on roadways laned for traffic. Obviously, we hope that accidents like this never happen, but luckily all of the children seem to be generally okay!
