Driver of bus did not brake in fatal tractor-trailer collision

According to Bristol Herald Courier, a bus and tractor-trailer collision occurred last Sunday, October 23 around 5:15 a.m. The accident happened along Interstate 10 near Palm Springs, California, killed 13 individuals and injured 31 others.

California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Jim Abele said the bus driver did not brake at all. Abele said, “There’s no indication whatsoever that the driver applied the brakes.” He added, “They just keep pulling bodies stuck in between the seats. It’s just due to this bus going so fast into the back of the truck. Why he did that, that’s what we’re trying to find out.”

USA Holiday had license to travel between states, which required bus driver Teodulo Elias Vides to drive within federal limits on regulated work hours. Under the circumstances police authorities described, Vides was within those limits. He departed Los Angeles at 8 p.m. and came back less than 12 hours later, which put the ceiling of the driving time at a 10 to 15-hour span.

Recall on SUV that killed Anton Yelchin

The 2015 Jeep Cherokee that caused the death of Anton Yelchin is part of a recall by Fiat Chrysler. The incident occurred last Sunday, June 19. Yelchin’s vehicle appeared to be in the ‘park’ position, but it was actually in ‘reverse’. Yelchin’s vehicle rolled from his driveway and crashed into him. Despite the June accident, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the recall in April.

The federal agency made the recall after drivers complained it was difficult to determine whether the vehicle was in park. Apparently, the vehicle alerts drivers with a noise and dashboard warning if a door is open while the vehicle is not in park. Even so, the push-button ignition does not shut off the engine, which increases the chances of a vehicle rolling away after the driver exits the vehicle.

If you have been injured by a recalled product, you may be able to receive compensation for your recovery. Contact the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., at 401.751.8855 if you want to hold manufacturers responsible for their actions.
