Glen Burnie Car-Bus Collision Ends in Fatality

By Alpert Schreyer on September 20, 2012

A collision between a car and an MTA bus in Glen Burnie on the evening of September 8 resulted in one death and 10 injuries. The fatal car collision occurred when a 2002 Lincoln LS crashed into a bus on 8th Avenue, according to CBS Local.

Police reported that the Lincoln crossed the center line of the street and traveled into the oncoming lane, where it collided head on with the bus. The collision caused the car to be driven backwards for 40 feet and burst into flames. The Lincoln driver was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for his injuries, but was pronounced dead at the hospital. There was also a 14-year-old boy in the car who was taken to Johns Hopkins Pediatric Center where he was said to be in stable condition. Reports indicate that neither passenger was wearing a seat belt.

The bus’s driver and eight of the 10 passengers on board were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Authorities have stated that they believe speed and driver error were the cause of the crash, but have not released further details.

At Alpert Schreyer, our Maryland bus crash injury attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of those injured in such crashes by negligent or reckless parties. Bus accidents are less common than other auto accidents, but frequently result in injuries to many victims as most riders are unrestrained and unaware of oncoming hazards.
