Castro Valley Google Bus Crash at Foothill Boulevard and 170th AvenueAt Least 7 Injured in Google Bus Accident

CASTRO VALLEY (September 12, 2018)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a Google Bus was involved in a collision with another vehicle this morning at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and 170th Avenue.

CHP officials responded to a call notifying them of the accident at roughly 6:28 a.m.

Motorist Runs Red Light Colliding Into Shuttle Bus

Reports indicated that the driver of an alleged gray Mazda blew through a red light subsequently colliding with the Google shuttle bus.

At least seven passengers on the bus were confirmed to have suffered injuries of an unknown degree.

The fire department and paramedics were dispatched to the scene arriving to provide medical care to those injured. Multiple patients were eventually transported via ambulance to local area hospitals for varying injuries.

No details were provided on the motorist driving the Mazda which had major damage to its left front side, per CHP officials.

Authorities remained at the scene for at least three hours as the intersection remained closed off as of 9:30 a.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. It appears, however, that the driver of the involved vehicle ran a red light and ultimately caused the collision based on the facts provided thus far. 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 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.
