A SEPTA bus and tractor trailer crashed in Philadelphia, injuring fifteen individuals. The tractor trailer crash occurred around 5:30 am on Tuesday morning in the Frankford section of the city when the SEPTA bus slammed into the tractor trailer that was turning off Orthodox Street. The passengers were taken to the Einstein Medical Center with a variety of personal injuries while the bus driver was brought to the Aria Torresdale Hospital for medical treatment.
When two large vehicles like a bus and tractor trailer engage in a collision, the results could be catastrophic. Occupants of either vehicle could incur a range of injuries or even fatalities during the accident. Since buses do not contain the same level of safety features that a car does, passengers are vulnerable when a crash occurs.
