Bus Driver Injured in Truck Accident in Hartford, CT

UPDATE (March 9, 2023): It stood out to me that this seemed to happen on a typical road in rather favorable conditions. More recent claims seem to shed light on what actually went wrong. Police now say that the truck involved disregarded a traffic signal, crashing into the bus. That truck driver has apparently been cited.

That's a pretty serious mistake, to say the least. A 16-year-old with a freshly-printed license knows how to stop at a stoplight. So why did a professional truck driver somehow fail to do so and send a hard-working public servant to the hospital? As usual, there are still unanswered questions, and it has yet to be seen if authorities are continuing their investigations into what all happened here.

West Hartford, CT — March 1, 2023, a bus driver was injured in a collision with an 18-wheeler at the intersection of Trout Brook Dr. and Albany Ave. in West Hartford.

Officials report they received a call around 5:08 a.m. for a collision between a CTtranist bus and an 18-wheeler.

The bus was reported as significantly deformed, and the driver reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries but was transported to a local hospital.

Authorities report the weather was clear, the road was icy, and the speed limit is set at 35 mph.

There are no further updates at this time.
