A multi-vehicle accident in New York involved a car that was actively running from the police and a city bus. The crash happened at around 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon.
According to police, they watched as a silver Honda committed a traffic violation. They then tried to stop the car. Officers were walking toward it when the driver took off and tried to flee.
As it did, the vehicle allegedly went through a red light and that's when it slammed into the MTA bus. The two men who were in the smaller vehicle then got out and ran, but police caught one.
In the chaos, two other cars were also involved in the wreck. A total of eight people was hurt and emergency crews brought them to Methodist Hospital. Reports at this time do not indicate their conditions or the severity of their injuries.
Three people were riding on the bus, along with the driver. Another vehicle had just a lone occupant, while the fourth had a pair of kids who were riding with an older driver.
Police say that charges are now pending since they have the suspect in custody, but they are still looking to see if they can find the second person who was in the fleeing vehicle.
All it takes is one driver to be negligent or reckless for many people to get injured in a crash. When this happens, the hospital bills and other costs, like lost wages, can put a lot of financial strain on those individuals. They need to know if they have a right to compensation.
