Bus Accident in Fresno Kills Six

A Greyhound bus accident outside of Fresno, California killed six people and injured 34. Four of the injured are in critical condition. The bus accident happened early Thursday morning on Highway 99. It was reportedly traveling from Los Angeles to Sacramento. It was to arrive in Sacramento around 5:15 am. It crashed just after 2:00 am.

According to reports, the bus swerved to miss an overturned minivan and hit a concrete divider. The bus then hit a car and a tree. Pictures of the bus accident show almost all of the damage on the left and front of the bus.

It is not known if all those who died were on the Greyhound bus. It was carrying 35 passengers at the time of the bus accident. Greyhound sent a relief bus to get passengers who wanted to continue the route to Sacramento.

Bus accidents are not a common type of accident, but when they happen, the chances for multiple serious injuries and death is high because there are no seatbelts. Catastrophic injuries to the spinal cord and head are very possible. Passengers are tossed around in the event of an accident.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a bus accident, please contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at the Cochran Firm for an initial case consultation. We serve clients nationwide.
