Car-Bus Accident in Fairfax County Leads to Injuries
The car, a gray Chrysler 300, slammed into the Fairfax County School bus. Fortunately, no students were onboard the bus at the time of the crash. The most pressing question that needs to be answered with this accident is what exactly caused the at-fault driver to slam into the bus. Was the driver distracted, intoxicated, or was there some sort of mechanical issue with the Chrysler 300? Police are currently investigating whether or not the at-fault driver was under the influence of some kind of substance, according to wusa9.com.
If it turns out the at-fault driver was driving while intoxicated, the victims should consult with a personal injury attorney in Virginia. When an at-fault individual causes an accident through reckless or wanton conduct, the victim may pursue punitive damages. This is a form of compensation in addition to compensation for medical expenses, any lost wages, and the pain and suffering associated with the accident.
