Anaheim, CA – 15 Injured in DUI Bus Accident on Katella Avenue and Douglass Road
Anaheim, CA (January 24, 2019) On the afternoon of January 24th, a DUI bus accident happened at the intersection of East Katella Avenue and South Douglass Road at around 3:00 p.m. According to the reports, a Chevy Silverado exited the 57 Freeway off-ramp when it hit an Orange County Transit Authority bus. The pickup truck sustained front end damage while the bus sustained rear damage on its passenger-side wheel.
When emergency crews arrived, they found 15 people suffering from minor to moderate injuries and transported all of them to a nearby hospital.
The police suspect the 29-year-old driver of the Chevy to have been under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash. They later arrested her on suspicion of felony DUI.
We hope all 15 injured victims fully recover from their injuries. Our thoughts are with them during this difficult time.
DUI and Bus Accidents in California
Most drivers get behind the wheel while they’re under the influence because, after a certain level of alcohol consumption, they lose their ability to make appropriate decisions for their safety. Because drunk drivers are on the road with a lack of reasoning, lack of self-judgment, lack of speed control, and decreased visual accuracy, they put themselves and others in danger.
Most bus accidents occur due to the negligence of other drivers, as was the case for this accident. Because negligence was involved, it’s likely that personal injury lawsuits will be filed with the help of a California personal injury lawsuit.
