Over a Dozen Injured in Baltimore MTA Bus and Vehicle CollisionJune 22, 2017
Over a dozen individuals sustained personal injuries when a vehicle collided into an MTA bus. Before 7 am on Wednesday morning, the vehicle struck the bus after running through a stop sign in Baltimore at North Montford Avenue and East Preston Street. The driver and two passengers were transported to the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Nearly 12 MTA bus occupants were brought to three different medical facilities including Bayview Medical Center, MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, and Union Memorial Hospital for treatment of their varying personal injuries. No fatalities or life-threatening injuries have been reported.
Commuters and tourists rely on the convenience of buses to transport them to their jobs or schools or sightseeing destinations, especially in a large, congested city. Unfortunately, many bus accidents may be caused by the following factors: lack of safety equipment, bus drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs or who experience fatigue, and the top-heavy design of a bus, which may lead to rollover accidents. Any of these factors could contribute to drivers and passengers sustaining personal injuries, catastrophic injuries, or even fatalities.
