Valley Transportation Authority Bus Accident in Milpitas Leaves Multiple Victims With Serious Injuries

On October 16, 2013, at approximately 5:15 p.m. a frightening bus accident occurred in Milpitas, California. The scene of the accident was southbound Interstate 680 between the Calaveras Avenue and Jacklin Road exits.

According to published reports, the Valley Transportation Authority ("VTA") bus was transporting passengers between the Fremont BART station and the Great Mall in Milpitas when the accident occurred. The bus made contact with a black pickup truck which caused it to careen into the center divider.

Police are investigating what caused the pickup truck to make contact with the bus. Some common causes of bus accidents include texting drivers, driver negligence and error, hazardous road conditions and maintenance issues and defective parts. A comprehensive bus accident investigation is necessary to determine the exact cause of this accident and identify who is liable for the injuries and damages sustained by the victims of this frightening bus accident.

Four of the bus passengers reportedly suffered injuries in the accident. The driver of the pickup truck also sustained undisclosed injuries. The injured people were transported to an area hospital.
