Collision between RIPTA bus and three vehicles hurts four

A crash that involved a Rhode Island Public Transit Authority bus and three vehicles on Saturday, December 3 on the Claiborne Newport Pell Bridge resulted in the injuries in two children.

A video from NBC 10 News, which showed the front and the side of the bus that figured in the Memorial Day weekend accident, gave us a glimpse of the bus moving along Newport traffic that was backed up in the right lane. It crashed into the line of vehicles, making a Nissan sedan turn slightly and crushing its trunk into the back seat. A pickup truck and a convertible were also damaged in the pileup.

RIPTA did not answer queries about who was operating the vehicle at the time of the accident. Names were blacked out in their submitted statements to the police.
