Bridgeport – Bus Hits Parked Vehicle
A bus collided with a pickup truck in Bridgeport yesterday.
Emergency crews responded to the intersection of Andover Street and Fairfield Avenue following reports of an accident in the area. According to officials, a passenger bus driven by a 58-year-old male crashed into a parked GMC Canyon with an 86-year-old male occupant. The driver of the pickup truck was transported to the hospital for evaluation, while at least one passenger inside the bus was also transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the collision. Authorities have yet to identify anyone involved in the incident pending an investigation. Officials will release updates when appropriate.
In many cases, operators of parked vehicles (unless parked inappropriately) are not responsible for this type of accident. That said, authorities will have to look at all possibilities before making any conclusion. Establishing liability is important if negligent parties are to be brought to justice. Not only that, this will also allow injured parties to seek guidance and pursue an appropriate legal course that will help them find closure.
