Witnesses: Bus cut-off car before Massachusetts Turnpike wreck

Reports of motor vehicle accidents often describe events involving the vehicles that are directly involved in the wreck. In some instances, police may suspect that a driver lost control, leading to a multi-vehicle wreck. In other situations, a driver may fail to notice that traffic is slowing, leading to a rear-end collision. Oftentimes, an accident in heavy traffic may lead to a chain-reaction accident. Clearly, traffic accidents do not always occur in a vacuum involving only the conduct one or two drivers.

Officials believe that a bus made an abrupt lane change or other type of maneuver Friday afternoon on the Massachusetts Turnpike, leading to an accident between two other vehicles. State police say that witnesses note that the bus had cut a car off. The driver of the car suffered undisclosed injuries that authorities do not believe are severe. She was taken to an area hospital after the turnpike crash.

Authorities say that the bus disappeared into afternoon traffic after the wreck. State police do not think that the bus was directly involved in any contact with other vehicles and expect that the bus did not even sustain any damage.

Authorities continue to investigate the Friday afternoon wreck. The crash occurred around 3:20 in the afternoon, leading to snarls for at least a portion of the afternoon commute.

When a person suffers injuries in a wreck, the accident victim and his or her family may have many questions. Witnesses may help investigators to piece things together. If a driver acts with negligence leading to an accident, victims may be able to seek justice for that negligence.

Abrupt lane changes or swerving in and out of traffic may involve recklessness on a driver’s part. Learning the complete details may be important, and a reckless driver may escape an accident scene without making contact with other vehicles.
