What the hell is going on out there? On Sunday a lot of people were injured when two Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) buses collided. According to a report by CBS DFW, around 11:00 in the morning near the intersection of Ledbetter Drive and Bronx Avenue, on DART bus stopped to pick up some passengers.
Suddenly another DART bus crashed into the back of it at a high rate of speed. How could you not see a bus in front of you at a stop?
Ten people were injured and taken into the hospital, including both drivers and several children. Fortunately there were no other vehicles involved in the accident.
Did Distracted Driving Cause This Wreck?
Distracted driving causes a significant number of the collisions we see in this office. We hope that a DART bus driver would not be talking on his cell phone and/or texting, but it happens. It is significant that school bus drivers are prohibited by state law from using a cell phone if children are present, but other bus drivers are allowed to do so.
