Manhattan Tour Bus Strikes Tree, Injuring Tourists

A tour bus crashed into a tree on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, causing 13 people to suffer injuries. The accident occurred at approximately 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, July 22 at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 63rd Street in New York City.
Two tourists, who are in their 70s, suffered serious injuries in the bus accident, while 11 other people sustained minor injuries. In addition, the front end of the bus was seriously damaged and the windshield was broken. According to New York police, the bus was traveling in the southern direction on Fifth Avenue when it turned to prevent being cut off by a taxi. The bus then moved onto a sidewalk and hit the tree. Several of those who were injured were seated on the top deck of the bus. In order to reach these passengers, rescue crews had to climb to the top deck.
A group of construction workers across the street heard the crash and hurried over to lend some assistance. Following the crash, parks workers brought the tree down.
Go New York Tours operates the double-decker bus that was involved in the accident. Records indicate that on March 15, one of the Go New York Tours buses belonging to the company was involved in an accident with a car in Queens, New York. There are 22 buses and 40 drivers affiliated with the company. Within the past two years, three buses failed federal inspections and were removed from the road. The company reportedly committed 18 violations, one of which was due to a driver’s lack of a commercial driver’s license.

If you were injured in a bus accident due to the negligence of the bus driver or some other motorist, call the personal injury attorneys at Proner and Proner. Our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers can help you get compensated for your bus accident injuries.
