A deadly collision between two New Jersey Transit buses in Newark left the driver of one bus dead and caused injuries to several passengers. The full details of the crash are still under investigation, according to a report by CBS New York. The buses were found in a classic T-Bone collision pattern. At least 18 people have been reported injured.
Due to their massive size, buses can cause devastating injuries to other drivers and their own passengers when they are involved in an accident. Passengers may sustain life-altering injuries, such as broken bones, amputations, severe head trauma resulting in brain damage, lacerations, and burns; in some cases injuries resulting from a bus accident can prove fatal. In many instances, the accident and subsequent injuries could have been avoided if not for the bus driver or manufacturer’s negligence. As a result, individuals who have suffered a severe injury in a bus accident may be entitled to compensation.
