VTA Bus Involved in an Accident at Unsafe Intersection

Posted on May 14, 2013

An accident with a VTA bus and a pickup truck in San Jose caused several injuries on Monday evening. The VTA bus ended up crashing into a Luna Park neighborhood home. The bus was found on the sidewalk next to the porch when police arrived at the scene. The home was not majorly damaged.

The accident occurred around 6:20 p.m. and left the green pickup truck in the middle of the intersection of 11th and Empire Streets. The truck was not as damaged as the VTA bus since, according to early reports from eyewitnesses, the truck ran a red light and smacked into the VTA bus causing it to veer in between two poles before it ended up lying next to the house.

Three people were taken to the hospital, including the bus driver, for some minor injuries. The driver had a broken hand and others were complaining of pain. One person was treated at the scene of the accident.  Luckily, the bus only had three passengers on it at the time of the collision. Bus service was not interrupted or affected by the accident.

Apparently, this particular intersection has proven to be very dangerous. An accident has occurred once a month in the area. Unfortunately, drivers seem to not be taking the warnings and speed through the intersection without heeding traffic signs and lights.  It might be because the area is congested and a big commuter spot.
