A Maryland tour bus and a car collided on the afternoon of January 3, leaving 12 passengers and both drivers injured, according to The Baltimore Sun. The accident occurred at approximately 4 p.m. on eastbound Route 610 near Whaleyville, Maryland when a Holloway Tours bus hit the back of a Honda Civic.
Maryland State Police are currently investigating the accident, but have released information that the Civic was slowing to turn left into a driveway when the bus rear-ended the vehicle. Police have not released information regarding charges or fault for the accident. Although 14 people were injured in the accident, there were no life-threatening injuries. The injured were transported to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin for treatment.
All Maryland commercial vehicle accidents, including bus crashes, have a great potential to not only inflict severe injuries but also affect a large number of victims. Tour buses are large, heavy, and can carry many more passengers than a normal motor vehicle. When buses are involved in a crash, passengers are at risk for severe injuries due to the impact of the crash, as well as the dangers presented by lack of restraints and the possibility of a rollover accident.
