West Hartford – Multiple Injuries In Bus Crash
Several students were hospitalized following an intersection crash in West Hartford yesterday afternoon.
A few minutes before 1:00 p.m., a school bus carrying passengers was traveling east on Boulevard when it crashed into a BMW that suddenly moved into the intersection from Four Mile Road. The collision forced the BMW to hit another vehicle, reportedly a blue minivan. The driver of the bus and four students were transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries. The driver of the BMW was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by firefighters, while the driver of the minivan refused medical treatment. Authorities immediately investigated the incident. The driver of the BMW has since been tagged as liable for the incident and was issued citations.
In this case, the party responsible for the incident was immediately identified. In other cases, however, culprits may not be readily obvious, and authorities are always expected to exhaust all means to establish liability and bring reckless or negligent individuals to justice. This process will also have the secondary benefit of allowing injured parties to explore legal options that can help find closure, such as filing for damages in appropriate situations.
