Eight Victims Suffer Serious Injuries after San Diego Casino Bus Accident

A frightening bus accident left eight victims with serious injuries. The accident occurred at approximately 9:30 a.m. on September 19, 2013. A bus that was operated by Silver State Coach Inc. of Placentia, California had picked up passengers from Seal Beach and was headed towards Harrah's Rincon Casino in northern San Diego County when the accident occurred.

According to published reports, the bus was traveling eastbound on Valley Center Road when it left the roadway and collided with a fence. Eight victims suffered injuries and were transported to local hospitals. Fortunately, none of the injuries are reportedly life threating. At Matiasic Roth & Johnson LLP our thoughts are with all the victims in hopes that they make a complete and speedy recovery.

Some common forms of bus driver negligence and error include: driver fatigue, driver intoxication, speeding, inattention, poor judgment, aggressive driving, texting while driving, and unsafe lane changes.
