Fifteen Injured in Separate Orlando Lynx Bus Accidents

Investigations are still underway in connection with two separate but similar accidents on Wednesday, July 13 involving Lynx buses. The bus accidents lead to hospitalization for 15 Orlando-area residents, and several more passengers received treatment for minor injuries at the scene. Police say the first accident occurred near the intersection of North Orange Blossom Trail and Rosamond Drive when a car belonging to a 51-year-old woman rear-ended the bus, which had stopped to unload passengers. Emergency response personnel transported eight people with injuries from this accident to area hospitals. The driver of the car was taken to Florida Hospital in serious condition. A spokesperson with the Florida Highway Patrol said they expect to file careless driving charges against her.

The other bus accident occurred at the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail and Fudge Road when an unknown driver rear-ended another Lynx bus. This accident injured six passengers on the bus, and firefighters had to cut open a section of the wrecked car to remove wounded passengers. FHP officers are looking into this accident and have not determined whether any charges will be filed.

Rear-end accidents are especially dangerous because in many cases, the people in the vehicle being struck from behind are unaware and ill-prepared for a collision. That certainly appears to be the case in both of these rear-end bus accidents. Both buses were stopped to unload passengers; so, many passengers were either standing or walking down the aisle when the cars collided with their bus. With nothing to prevent them from being hurled forward by the collision, these unfortunate people suffered injuries that are far more serious than those who were seated during the collision.

People injured in vehicular accidents often need medical care that results in bills that quickly climb into the tens of thousands of dollars or more.
