MTA Vehicles Collide, Injure Dozens
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Jan 21, 2015 in Personal Injury
Early this morning, two MTA buses collided injuring nearly 30 people in Baltimore.
According to the Maryland Transit Administration, an MTA Mobility Van meant for physically disabled people collided with a larger MTA bus at approximately 7:12 a.m. at North Avenue and McCulloh Street.
Original reports were that between 30 and 35 people had been injured, but this number was later decreased to 21 adults and 4 children. While one person has serious injuries, none of the passengers injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
The cause of the accident is unknown, and both the MTA and city police are investigating.
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation reported that roads in the area were closed due to the crash, but have since reopened.
The attorneys at Goldberg, Finnegan and Mester are relieved that the accident did not cause any life-threatening injuries. However, our accident lawyers understand that the physical and emotional trauma of an accident can leave lasting scars.
