August 10, 2011 – Staten Island, New York – According to a report from My Fox New York, a charter bus from Pennsylvania, carrying a minor league baseball team collides with an SUV on Staten Island Expressway. The bus accident took place on Tuesday evening, August 2, when the bus driver allegedly made a wrong turn before it crashed into the SUV. This resulted in the bus hitting the center of a metal guardrail, where it was left dangling. No serious injuries were reported and those on the bus were safely removed from it. The bus later had to be removed with a strap attached to a crane. If you or someone you love was the victim of someone else’s negligence in a bus accident, you may be able to receive compensation for injuries and damages. To learn what your legal options are, you should speak with a Staten Island injury attorney as soon as possible. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009, there were 1,156 fatalities as a result of traffic accidents in the state of New York.
