Cincinnat Car Bus Accident One Killed Many Injured

Cincinnati bus car crash
It was reported that a car rear ended another car then went left of center crashing into a metro bus. It was reported that Charnisha Hardy was killed in the car bus crash and was the driver of the car that rear ended  another car that was stopped in traffic as she was heading eastbound on North bend road.

Multiple people were injured.  Channel 19 reported the bus driver was seriously injured and hospitalized . Many lives will be forever changed and condolences to everyone injured or killed in this car bus accident.

Commentary

It appears from the police reports that the person that was killed was at fault for violating the assured clear distance statute. When someone dies responsible for a car accident an estate should be opened at some point so the accident injury victims have a legal entity to bring their claims against. There are certain time limits that are applicable.

Also with multiple injuries the question is whether there is enough insurance to go around to compensate for the losses and damages. This brings into play the question of underinsured motorist coverage available to the people injured.

Another legal issue is that the bus driver has two claims. since they were working they can bring a workers compensation claim. In addition the bus driver can bring a claim against the deceased and the insurance coverage she had available.
