Livingston, LA (August 5, 2019) – Emergency crews responded to a multi-vehicle accident that shut down Interstate 12 at LA-63 in Livingston, Louisiana. The accident happened at around 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 3rd.
Initial reports from the Livingston Police Department found that a Greyhound bus collided with the railing of the highway, causing traffic to build up around the crash site. This resulted in other collisions taking place.
One crash involved a car striking the median. As the occupants waited outside the vehicle for assistance, another crash caused a car to strike those waiting at the median.
Reports first responders indicated that 6 people were hospitalized. At least two of these were occupants of the charter bus.
The current conditions of the injured parties are unknown.
The story is still developing, and the cause of the pile-up is being investigated.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
In 2009, around 20,000 were injured in crashes involving buses in the United States.
It has been shown that young bus drivers can cause crashes due to inexperience behind the wheel of such a large vehicle.
In some cases, victims of these accidents may be able to pursue legal action with the help of a qualified Baton Rouge bus injury attorney.
