A silver sedan was struck on its side by the transit bus. The front-end of the bus was damaged and the entire windshield cracked from the impact. At the time of the crash, five people and the bus driver were aboard the bus. One passenger said they saw the car zoom by. The bus driver attempted to slam on the brakes, but could not stop in time.
Windsor police are still investigating the collision and charges are pending.
In 2012, the Ontarios Road Safety Annual Reports reveal that more than 3,000 buses were involved in motor vehicle accidents. Although unspecified as to exactly how many were transit buses, these types of vehicles are involved in dozens of accidents each year.
More than six million people use Transit Windsor. Unfortunately, other drivers often put themselves, bus drivers and passengers in danger when they fail to obey the rules of the road. Running red lights, failing to yield and reckless driving are just a few of the causes of transit bus vs. auto accidents.
