OAKLAND: AC Transit Bus Hits Mini Cooper on I-580 at Park Boulevard
OAKLAND, California (September 24, 2014) – A red Mini Cooper was struck by an Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus Wednesday morning on the eastbound Interstate 580 MacArthur Freeway at the E. Park Boulevard off ramp, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
The traffic accident was reported to police about 6:49 this morning in the No. 1 lane of the freeway. The woman who was driving the Mini Cooper was able to get out of her vehicle following the crash, but she appears to have been injured.
Paramedics responded to the crash to assist those hurt, but it’s unclear whether anyone was transported to a hospital. Ken Betts Towing responded to remove the car, but it had to be dragged to the right-hand side of the freeway.
Police are heading up an investigation into the crash to determine liability.
“Fortunately no one was seriously injured in this crash,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Anyone who is hurt in a crash involving a city or county-owned bus should know there are shorter time limits available to file an injury claim with these entities.”
