A recent Greyhound bus crash in Fresno, California has left six people
dead and several injured, according to a
MSNBC news report. The bus was carrying 47 total passengers at the time of the
crash, which occurred at 2:14AM PST. Two other vehicles were involved
in the Central Valley bus accident, and it is still unclear whether or
not the six fatality victims and others injured were all passengers on
the bus, or motorists/passengers from one or both of the other two vehicles
involved. Those injured were transported to Fresno Community Regional
Medical Center for treatment. Although the number of individuals injured
was not known at the time of this article’s release, KMPH-TV did
report that a total of nine people were taken to the hospital, but this
number has not been confirmed.
The Fresno Greyhound bus crash is still being investigated, but the California
Highway Patrol did report that the bus driver attempted to avoid an overturned
vehicle prior to losing control of the bus. As a consequence, the bus
crashed into a concrete divider and hit one of the two other involved
vehicles. Further details of the crash will undoubtedly reveal themselves
in the coming days, as investigators attempt to determine whether or not
any other factors played a contributing role in the California bus accident.
If it is determined that negligence played a role in the collision, then
the party or parties responsible for said negligence may be held liable
for their actions in a court of law.
