Montebello Line Bus Collides With Vehicle
WHITTIER (July 30, 2018)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a Montebello line bus was involved in an accident with a vehicle this morning at the intersection of Washington and Pioneer boulevards.
At roughly 10:58 a.m., CHP officials responded to the crash site where several parties complained of injuries.
At this time, the cause of the accident has not been disclosed but has been confirmed that multiple victims were treated at the scene before being transported to a hospital.
It remains unclear how many passengers were on board the bus and if any of them were hurt.
CHP authorities were on scene investigating as of 12:00 p.m.

A forensic examination of both the bus and the vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by each vehicle such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, any injured passengers injured on the bus and possibly the driver of the involved vehicle (if not found responsible for the crash) will be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party pending the investigation results. Victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
