Bus, car collide at intersection In Kansas City, 12 injured

A brutal accident at an intersection in Kansas City, Missouri left 12 people with injuries and the police investigating the incident. The crash involved a Ride KC bus and a smaller passenger vehicle. Details regarding the reason for the crash are unavailable, but what is known is that the bus hit the car in the side at the intersection. From the photos in the source article, it is clear this happened as the two vehicles tried to pass through the intersection.

Three people in the smaller car were taken to the hospital for their injuries, including a two-year-old child. The adult in the back seat of the passenger car was listed in critical condition at a local hospital. 11 people on the bus had to be taken to a hospital to be checked out for injuries.

Accepting medical care after a motor vehicle accident is actually a really important part of the post-crash process, even if your injuries are minimal. Receiving that care means your injuries are recorded and documented, and that can be very useful in the event of a personal injury lawsuit that you or another person files.

Additionally, it is important to note just how dangerous intersection are in the world of road safety. Intersections are where most accidents happen, so whether you are a pedestrian, a bicyclist, or the driver of a motor vehicle, it is very important that you pay attention when you approach and go through an intersection.
