Four Injured in Walnut Creek Bus Crash

Four bus passengers were injured when the driver of the bus veered off the road and struck a power pole. The scary accident occurred on November 5, 2012, on the Rossmoor Parkway in Walnut Creek.

According to published reports, the bus was just inside the gated senior community of Rossmoor when it inexplicably left the roadway. The 16-seat bus was carrying four passengers at the time of the accident. All four passengers were transported to an area hospital for treatment. Our thoughts are with the victims in hopes that they all make a speedy and complete recovery.

The cause of this frightening bus accident is still under investigation. A Walnut Creek Police Department spokesperson has indicated that there was not any evidence that the bus driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, it appears that bus driver negligence may have contributed to this accident.

There are many different forms of bus driver negligence. Some common examples of bus driver negligence include: texting drivers, driver inattention, speeding, and driver fatigue. The bottom-line is that whenever a bus driver is not taking their duties seriously they are putting the safety of their passengers and other motorists at risk.

A bus driver can be held personally liable for any injuries or damages caused by their negligence. Additionally, the driver's employer and their insurance company can also be held financially responsible for the resulting injuries.
