Bus Accident In Baltimore Leaves Six People Dead
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Six fatalities occurred, and several others were injured after a tragic multiple
bus accident in Baltimore Tuesday morning. Authorities say a school bus crossed into
oncoming traffic and collided with a commuter bus just before 7 a.m. A
Baltimore Police spokesman said the school bus was not transporting children
at the time of the crash, but several passengers were on board the commuter bus.
The school bus was on the way to the first pickup of the day when the eastbound
school bus hit a car and then veered into oncoming traffic in the 3800
block of Frederick Avenue in Irvington. The school bus then collided with
a Maryland Transit Administration bus with such force that it ripped through
the side of the bus and ripped the driver’s side off.
Witnesses say the collision shook the ground. First responders reported
to the scene and began working through the wreckage. Pictures of the horrific
accident show what looks like a bomb exploded and with the two buses jack-knifed
into each other.
According to police, the driver and five passengers aboard the commuter
bus were killed. Ten other people were taken to nearby hospitals with
multiple injuries. The individual operating the car that was struck by
the school bus was also injured in the accident. Authorities say there
was an aide on the school bus who survived the crash. The accident is
still under investigation as officials work to determine what caused the crash.
