An RTD driver that drove the wrong way in the I-25 HOV lanes on Wednesday has resigned. According to the Denver Post
, the driver, who was alone at the time, went around gates and signs warning him before he began traveling northbound against traffic at about 5:30 a.m. There were no collisions but drivers reported pulling over to the shoulder to avoid the bus. An RTD dispatcher ordered the bus to pull over at East 70th
Avenue after being notified by another driver of the situation.
Bus accident statistics are limited; however, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s
Fatality Analysis Reporting System data for 1993 to 1997 shows that 141 buses were involved in accidents that resulted in the deaths of 21 occupants and injuries to 442 occupants.
If you or someone you love was involved in a bus accident in the state of Colorado, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney immediately to avoid missing any critical deadlines. If the bus is a government-owned entity, you have a small window of time to file a lawsuit. In fact, according to Colorado law, C.R.S. 24-10-109, injured victims only have 180 days to file a notification. An experienced and aggressive Colorado bus injury attorney
will be able to ensure that you meet all the state’s requirements so you can receive the compensation you deserve after a traumatic bus accident. Contact attorney John Fuller today at 303-597-4500
