Emery Co, UT (December 28, 2021) – Twenty people were hurt when a Greyhound bus traveling to Las Vegas drifted off an interstate and overturned following a snowstorm in central Utah on Monday, December 27th.
The crash took place on Interstate 70 in Emery County.
The passengers who were injured in the accident were taken to various hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to serious.
Investigators have not yet been able to determine what caused the Greyhound bus to leave the roadway and end up on its side nearly 100 yards away.
Thirty-seven passengers and the driver were on board when the crash occurred. The bus had departed Green River earlier in the day and was headed for Las Vegas, NV.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Accidents involving oversized vehicles are often the result of an operator, manufacturer, or company negligence. This can include defective parts, inadequate or total lack of maintenance, insufficient driver training, and speeding, or other unlawful driving habits.
These are dangerous on their own. However, when combined with inclement weather and poor road conditions, drivers who are already exhausted from being overworked are much more likely to make miscalculations and other judgment errors.
When injuries happen in a collision caused by another motorist’s negligence, victims need to seek legal counsel from an accident attorney in Emery County. Whenever somebody is hurt and another person is the cause, they are qualified to obtain compensation for their losses.
