Five Injured in Two CTA Bus Accidents
Five people were injured in two separate CTA bus crashes that occurred early this morning. The first accident occurred shortly after midnight in the 1700 block of West Irving Park Road, when a car and a CTA bus were involved in a collision. One person was injured in the accident, but no further details were available.
Around 5:10am Thursday morning a second CTA crash occurred near the 6400 block of South Kedzie Avenue on the city’s Southwest Side. Four people were injured when a van collided with a CTA bus, causing the bus driver to lose control and crash into a nearby building. The driver of the van and three CTA passengers were admitted to Holy Cross Hospital; two with serious injuries. Police have stated that none of the injuries appear to be life threatening.
While CTA buses and trains are generally very safe methods of transportation; accidents do occur. Bus accidents can cause serious injury to bus riders, along with drivers of other vehicles. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures and other serious injuries can occur as a result of driver negligence or unsafe vehicle conditions.
