On Thursday afternoon, a bus accident that involved a tractor-trailer left ten victims with a range of personal injuries. In Greenville, South Carolina, around 1:00 pm, the bus crash occurred when both a Greenlink bus and a tractor-trailer simultaneously entered the intersection of White Horse Road and Crestfield Road. The bus driver and nine passengers sustained injuries during the Greenville bus accident while the tractor-trailer driver incurred no injuries.
When large vehicles containing several passengers engage in an accident, the outcome may be catastrophic. Since a vehicle such a commuter bus generally does not contain various safety features like cars do, passengers and the bus driver may sustain injuries or even fatalities during a crash. In some cases, the bus driver may fail to use caution when transporting the occupants or lack the proper training to operate a bus. Truck drivers may be experiencing driver fatigue, which may contribute to an accident.
