A bus accident in San Jose involving a bus and a small passenger vehicle
ended with six people being sent to the hospital with minor injuries.
According to a
www.abclogal.go.com report, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority vehicle was traveling
near the intersection of Senter Road and Phelan Avenue when it rear-ended
the smaller vehicle. While no occupants inside the smaller vehicle were
injured, six passengers on the bus were transported to the hospital with
non-life threatening injuries.
While the reason for the vehicle crash in San Jose is still being investigated,
it may be reasonably assumed that driver inattention may have played a
determining role in the incident. Unfortunately, reckless driving practices
often result in San Jose traffic accidents, and those individuals involved
in the accident are sometimes left with costly medical bills, lengthy
recover times, and other detriments that negatively impact their quality
of life. If it is determined that negligence of any kind played a role
in the accident, then innocent accident victims do have a right to seek
monetary damages from determined negligent parties. Furthermore, in cases
involving public transportation, the city may also be held liable for
damages resulting from the incident.
