Car and bus crash in Florida causes injuries

A car and a Broward County bus evidently crashed in Florida. The front of the bus and the car both had physical damage. The collision caused both property damage and personal injuries, as is sometimes the case with auto accidents.

The cause of the accident is unknown. Five people received injuries in the car accident, and two of the injured people were children. The driver of the car that was involved in the crash had to be removed from his vehicle and apparently suffered a broken pelvis.

The bus seems to have hit a transmission pole that was 75 feet high. The crash caused over 1,000 customers of Florida Power & Light to lose their power. After the crash, the company replaced the pole and restored the power.

The bus driver has two previously received warnings for safety violations on file that occurred while he was on the job. One of the recorded violations was for running a red light while driving, and the other violation was for an incident where an automobile scraped the side of the bus while the bus was in motion.

People who are involved in car crashes are sometimes injured. If an individual suffers personal injury as the result of an auto accident, they may want to consult with a personal injury attorney. A lawyer may be able to evaluate the cause of the accident and could discuss any potential compensation with the injured person. Physical injuries caused by a car crash can cause pain and suffering, and an injured individual may have to pay medical expenses and may suffer lost wages. A personal injury attorney could help an injured person determine whether they want to pursue a lawsuit to try to recover some of these damages.
