Magna, UT (June 06, 2021) – Four people sustained injuries when a Utah Transit Authority bus wrecked on Salt Lake County’s west side on Sunday, June 6th.
The accident occurred with passengers on board at about 4:00 p.m. near the intersection of 3500 South and 7300 West. The cause of the accident is unknown but the bus ultimately drove onto the shoulder where it crashed into a chain-link fence and then a tree.
According to a spokesperson, the injured victims include the bus driver and two passengers. It is unclear how the fourth victim was involved.
It was not immediately clear if the crash involved any other vehicles.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Accidents involving oversized vehicles can often be caused by company and/or operator negligence including defective parts, inadequate or no maintenance, insufficient driver training, speeding or other illegal driving habits, especially when coupled with bad weather or road conditions, and drivers who are fatigued from being overworked who are more likely to make miscalculations and other errors of judgment.
When injuries happen in a collision caused by another motorist’s negligence, victims need to seek legal counsel from an accident attorney in Salt Lake City. Whenever somebody is hurt and another person is the cause, they are qualified to obtain compensation for their losses.
