Bus crash seriously injures 2 in New York

Authorities with the FDNY reported that two people were seriously injured when a small bus crashed near the George Washington Bridge. The accident reportedly occurred on March 10 when the bus left the roadway and smashed through a stone wall before careening down an embankment.

According to reports, the bus was on a ramp connecting the Henry Hudson Parkway to the bridge on the west side of Manhattan just north of Fort Washington Park. Emergency medical personnel responded and transported the two people to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. Both injured people were reportedly in serious condition but are expected to survive.

Law enforcement officials were uncertain what caused the bus to leave the roadway. Officers indicated that the two injured people were the only occupants of the bus at the time of the crash. The bus was reportedly labeled with the company name "Brooklyn Transportation Corporation." The company reportedly did not respond to requests for comment.

When a person suffers a serious personal injury in a motor vehicle accident caused by the negligence of another, the injured victim may want to consider filing a personal injury civil lawsuit against the driver who caused the accident. In the event the driver is also working at the time of the accident, both the driver and their employer may be held civilly liable in a resulting lawsuit. Through such a suit, injured plaintiffs may seek and recover damages that are meant to compensate them for all of the losses they have incurred due to the accident. People who have been seriously injured in an accident may want to seek a consultation with a personal injury attorney.
