2 Devastating Tour Bus Crashes Miles Away From Each Other

Corona Tour Bus AccidentTour buses are a big part of California’s economy. Unfortunately, they have also become a hot bed for accidents, most of which result in serious injuries and even fatalities for the passengers. While the massive size of a bus some provides a certain level of safety for its passengers, it does not make it foolproof. When a tour bus gets into an accident, the passengers, who are often not wearing safety belts, pay the price in pain, injury and even death.

The Corona Tour Bus Crash

On Thursday, December 19th, a tour bus that was traveling in wet weather from the Pala Casino Spa & Resort in San Diego County to Westminster in Orange County, was involved in a crash on the northbound I-15 between Magnolia Avenue and the 91 Freeway. The bus was traveling at 65 mph, a speed that is considered to be unsafe for wet road conditions. The driver was unable to maintain control of the bus, which traveled off the roadway and into the center median area. The vehicle eventually struck the guardrail and overturned onto its side in the northbound number 1 and 2 lanes.

All of the passengers were transported to area hospitals. The injuries ranged from minor to moderate. The tour bus crash also resulted in one fatality.

Another Tour Crash Just 40 Miles Away

About forty miles away, there was a second tour bus crash on the I-15 at roughly the same time. Similar to the Corona in crash, the driver of this bus, which was traveling at 55 mph from the Panorama City area to Valley View Casino, also lost control, causing the vehicle to skid to the right shoulder of the roadway and turn onto its left side.

Unfortunately, this crash resulted in one death and about two dozen other injuries, six of which were serious and needed immediate medical treatment at the scene of the accident.

Steps to Take After a Bus Accident

If you have been involved in any type of bus accident, it is imperative that you take certain steps to protect your legal rights. Our Orange County bus accident attorneys suggest you take the following steps:

  1. Try to move to a safe location, if possible.
  2. Get immediate medical care, even if you believe that you have not suffered any serious injuries. Symptoms of certain injuries may not surface until a few days or weeks after the accident.
  3. File a police report.
  4. Get the contact information of any witnesses to the scene of the accident.
  5. Consult with an experienced Orange County bus accident lawyer who specializes in handling such accidents.
