WFOR-TV reported that in mid-March an auto accident involving a car and a Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue truck injured six people, including a child. According to the report, after the truck and car collided, one of the vehicles struck a fire hydrant, leading to water flooding the crash scene. Following the wreck, the car was reportedly mangled and the fire rescue truck had overturned. People were trapped in both vehicles, including three firefighters trapped inside the truck and three other people trapped inside the car. A witness gave police officers a wrench to break the fire truck's windshield, which enabled the firefighters to be pulled out of the vehicle.

Faulty GPS directions are thought to have contributed to a car accident involving personal injury and wrongful death in Indiana in late March.

The Cline Bridge, where the accident took place, has been closed since 2009. The accident happened when 64-year-old driver Iftikhar Hussain drove his vehicle onto the Cline Bridge and failed to notice its sudden end. The car fell 37 feet, leading to serious injuries for Hussain and the death of his wife and passenger, Zohra.

Investigators blamed Hussain's attention to his GPS device for the accident. The couple was on their way to visit family and was unfamiliar with the area. The distraction caused by the GPS device is cited as an explanation for the family's failure to notice several signs warning that the bridge was gone.

Distracted driving comes in many forms. Much of the time, it involves electronic devices such as GPS tools and cell phones, but drivers can also be distracted by food, drinks, makeup, shaving, changing the radio or even simple conversation. Even the slightest lapse in attention to the road can cause a serious accident.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed due to a distracted driver, you are not alone. Speaking with a dedicated personal injury and wrongful death attorney can help you deal with the complex legalities of these types of cases so that you can be free to focus your energy where you are needed – with your loved ones.

It has been a rough few months for Megabus and its riders – on April 13, one of the company's buses was involved in what firefighters described as a “very serious” bus accident south of Indianapolis. The bus rear-ended a semi truck and injured ten passengers.

A History of Negligence

This accident is the fourth since mid-October, when only a few miles away a different bus crash led to a Megabus rollover with 18 injured passengers. The injuries in that accident included cuts, contusions and a possible broken arm. Following that, a December 20 rollover accident led to 26 injured passengers, and ten days later another bus accident resulted in two injuries. Fortunately, none of these four bus accidents resulted in wrongful death.

Though the low rates offered by Megabus can make them an attractive transportation method, it is clear that the company has a history of negligence. In the most recent accident, the driver failed to brake after traffic slowed down and as a result slammed into the back of a semi truck; the December 30 accident occurred the same way. Safety advocates have decried Megabus for complacence regarding bus maintenance, as many Megabus accidents nationwide have been caused by tire blowouts.

Because of the high potential for injury and death as a result of a bus accident, drivers should exercise caution around these vehicles. If you have been injured in a Megabus accident, a skilled personal injury attorney can help you figure out the best ways to move forward. Because commercial vehicle accidents present complex questions regarding liability, a knowledgeable ally could make a big difference in your recovery.
