Unfortunately, there has been a fatality in the nations capital due to a bus collision with a car. The Metro bus accident occurred after sunset authorities said. There was a 24 four year old that was killed as a result of the accident. The traffic accident happened at the intersection of Minnesota Ave. NE and Benning Road NE around midnight. The local authorities closed the intersection during an investigation into the fatal accident.
The initial investigation found that the bus was headed eastbound on Benning Road, NE. As the bus was making a left turn onto Minnesota Avenue, NE, a Nissan Altima traveling in the opposite direction, westbound, swerved into the left lane and struck the bus head-on. The driver of the Nissan later died at the hospital. Several passengers in the bus and passenger car were also taken to the hospital.
This is a most unfortunate event for all of those involved and certainly the family of the driver of the Nissan. When an accident like this occurs there are usually several types of insurance claims that can arise. As a general matter passengers in the car and the bus will have an insurance claim against whomevers vehicle insurance they were riding in, depending on the facts and circumstances. Also, based on what the investigation reveals the deceased drivers family may or may not have a wrongful death claim against the bus insurance. I represent clients as a car accident lawyer.
