Last week, we talked about a horrific bus accident that sent dozens to the hospital. Now police have finished their investigation. 11 Alive has reported that the bus driver will be facing second-degree homicide charges.
The group was on their way to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for a mission trip. Police say that the driver of the bus tried to change lanes near Camp Creek Road and hit a vehicle that was already there. The driver overcorrected and turned into the median. The bus fell on its side, slid, and was hit by another vehicle. One person died at the scene of the accident.
The driver is still in recovery in the hospital. Several of the injured have been released from the hospital, but others are still undergoing treatment.
If the report by the police holds up in court, this driver is in serious trouble. In addition, whoever holds insurance on the bus is going to have a lot of paperwork. Claims will be made to cover all those medical stays.
Family members of people injured in large accidents should retain counsel to maximize their compensation amounts.
