Semi-Truck and Shuttle Bus Crash Leads to Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
Investigators analyzed wreckage and eye witness accounts to determine who was at fault in an accident between a semi truck and a UCSF shuttle bus in San Francisco. At least one witness said the accident was caused by the shuttle running a red light. The accident killed one person, a doctor who worked at San Francisco General, and injured 4 others.
According to police reports of the 2011 crash:
The crash happened at Octavia and Oak streets at 6:20 a.m. when a 2007 Peterbilt tractor-trailer truck carrying four cars collided with the Ford shuttle bus taking UCSF employees to San Francisco General Hospital.
Even if a bus runs a red light, a semi truck driver that hits it may be partially at fault if he was speeding or distracted. Liability in bus accident personal injury and wrongful death cases can be complex. Contact our bus accident lawyers for a free consultation.
