San Diego County Bus Crash Injures 11 Children

A school bus accident on the Campo Indian reservation has left eleven children hurt, according to San Diego County’s authorities. State Fire Department spokesperson Mike Mohler said that the bus struck a light pole at approximately 8 a.m. causing the bus to crash. Mohler said that all the eleven children were immediately taken to a local hospital and ten out of them have been released after treating their moderate injuries.

According to the California Highway Patrol, this bus accident occurred in the parking lot of the reservation’s Golden Acorn casino. The reservation is located about forty miles south-east of Downtown San Diego.

Our office wishes for all the injured children to reach a full recovery. It is hard to imagine that the bus driver failed to pay such attention to his job that the bus struck a light pole. One would think that a driver charged with the safety of kids would be more careful while operating a vehicle.

We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured victims sustain any life-threatening injuries.

Driver in Fatal Central California Tour Bus Crash had History of Prior Accidents

You have likely heard about the recent deadly tour bus carrying tourists, mostly from France, from the San Francisco area down to Los Angeles, where they were due to depart back to France. The Orion Pacific tour bus had overturned on a highway overpass in Central California where four passengers were ejected from the bus as it lay in a wreck around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday. There were five confirmed deaths from the bus accident.

A new detail reveals that the American driver, John Egnew, 69, of Corona in Riverside County, had been involved in another accident about three years ago. The Associated Press found evidence that in 2005, Egnew struck a 71-year-old woman in Las Vegas as she was crossing the street with her husband, leaving the woman with serious injuries. Egnew claimed that he didn’t see the pedestrian on the road.

Driver Suffers Injuries in El Cerrito Bus Accident

An unidentified pickup driver suffered serious injuries in an El Cerrito bus accident that occurred on April 13, 2011, around 6:32 p.m. on Cajalco Road just west of La Sierra Avenue, in Riverside County. According to the responding California Highway Patrol Officers, a pickup truck driver crashed his vehicle into a school bus carrying 32 students due to unknown reasons.

The injured pickup driver was immediately transported to Corona Regional Medical Center for medical treatment.

San Diego Bus Accident Injures Nine People

Nine people were injured in a San Diego bus accident that occurred between a Metropolitan Transit System and a Mitsubishi Eclipse in the City Heights area of San Diego on March 24, 2010 around 3:40 p.m.

The car driver was apparently drunk and ran a red light at the University Avenue intersection with 37th Street. He then collided into the bus that was eastbound on the 37th Street. The car rammed into the bus just behind its front wheels which made the Eclipse spin. The drunk driver fled from the scene on foot. The collision caused back and neck pains to nine of the forty passengers.

Our office hopes for the young driver of the Eclipse is caught as soon as possible and prosecuted. He should be charged for such reckless behavior and for felony drunk driving causing injury. Driving while intoxicated is inexcusable, particularly when it causes serious injury.

We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured victims sustain any-life threatening injuries
