A Greyhound bus driving on the Pennsylvania turnpike last week, near the Lancaster/Lebanon exit, turned over on its side. The crash injured 24 passengers and left one woman trapped in the wreckage; 29 people total were on board, including the driver. Police are investigating the cause of the crash. Greyhound declined to comment on the driver's record and driving performance.
Tour bus and commercial truck drivers are a significant cause of motor vehicle accidents . Often, these commercial drivers are fatigued and are driving above the mandated allotment of hours. Additionally, many of them are driving large vehicles that are not up to federal and state safety standards. As a result, passengers and other vehicles often bear the brunt of their illegal activity and are often seriously injured or die from a resulting collision. If you have been injured or a loved one has died as a result of a commercial vehicle accident, please contact our law office for a consultation at no cost to you at the Law Offices of Attorney Doug Stoehr.
