A SEPTA bus crash into a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania home fatally injured a man on Thursday evening. The fatal bus accident occurred around 6pm when a SEPTA bus traveling on Morrell Avenue went through a stop sign, struck a sedan and small car, and then careened into a home in the Torresdale section of the city. The bus fatally struck a 52-year-old man who was using a children’s pool and pinned a man and woman in their twenties toward the house. Both victims incurred serious injuries, and the drivers of the cars sustained minor injuries. The bus driver and two passengers were injured as well after the SEPTA bus crash.
SEPTA provides millions of rides to commuters and visitors in Philadelphia and the surrounding communities on a daily basis. Unfortunately, with the consistent presence of SEPTA vehicles on the road means the chances of a serious accident occurring increases. A wide range of injuries and potential fatalities may result from accidents with SEPTA vehicles, and SEPTA must be held accountable when a crash stems from their negligence.
