Tour Bus Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Bus Accident Attorney.  I have been helping victims of bus accidents in Sacramento and throughout Northern California for over three decades.  Accidents involving municipal and city buses are far more common than accidents involving charter or tour buses.  However, recently there have been tour bus accidents in the news.

Double-Decker Tour Bus Crash at San Francisco’s Union Square

Recently in San Francisco’s Union Square, a sightseeing tour bus crashed.  It left more than twenty people injured, some critically.

Witnesses describing the horrifying bus crash said that the tour bus came barreling over two city blocks.  The bus ran into and caused injuries to a bicyclist and to two pedestrians. It went on to hit several cars before coming to a rest up against some scaffolding adjacent to a construction site.

Statement Released Regarding Tour Bus Crash

The CEO of the San Francisco sightseeing company released a statement following the tragic crash.  In it he said how deeply saddened the entire company was over the events of Friday, November 13, 2015.  He went on to say that they are cooperating with accident investigators to figure out how and why this accident happened.  The company extended a speedy recovery to all those who were injured.

Injuries of Victims

About twenty people were injured in the 3:00 p.m. tour bus crash. Police indicated that six people received serious injuries as a result of the accident.  San Francisco General Hospital said some of the most seriously injured suffered bone fractures and head injuries.
