Seven different people were forced to endure what were described as non-life threatening injuries following a collision in Merced County.
It all started as a VIA Transportation bus was headed west down Highway 152 going about 50 or 60 miles per hour in the right lane. At some point, a red vehicle approached the bus from the left, in the fast lane. For unknown reasons, the two vehicles struck each other’s sides.
The force of the collision sent the smaller red vehicle plunging across the median and into the oncoming lanes of the freeway. Unfortunately, another vehicle was headed down the freeway and those two vehicles hit each other as well.
The bus was empty at the time of the crash, and the driver of the conveyance was uninjured. Unfortunately, seven others from the other two vehicles were not as lucky. Occupants between the ages of 2 and 30 had to be treated for various injuries. They were transported by ambulance and helicopter.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of the accident. They have said that none of the injuries incurred in the crash should pose a danger to the lives of the persons involved.
I’m disappointed as a car accident lawyer in San Francisco to see so many people injured by one crash. We must tread carefully when out along California roads, as to do otherwise could imperil numerous lives. I hope as a San Francisco personal injury attorney that everyone out there understands the dangers of the highway.
