Yet another tour bus accident has occurred. This time, a Dahlia tour bus from Queens heading to Mohegan Sun flipped over on I-95 in Connecticut on Monday injuring 30 people. Initial reports indicate that the weather may have played a role in the crash. 55 passengers were reported to be on board, and 30 were injured. The injured passengers were taken to local area hospitals for treatment.
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.
