The victim suffered severe injuries and died a few days later. RTA’s systems safety engineers are looking into ways to prevent future accidents. The bus driver has apparently been a RTA bus operator for years, even after a previously pedestrian accident in 2006. The driver is also being questioned and tested for drugs and/or alcohol.
The transit authority recently retrained its drivers to make safe left turns after a 66-year-old man was struck and died last fall.
In such bus versus pedestrian accidents, the victims’ families would be well-served to consult with an experienced Ohio accident attorney, who will be able to thoroughly examine the investigative reports and determine exactly who should be held accountable.
