13 Dead and 31 Injured
On October 23, 2016, a tour bus carrying passengers from a Southern California casino, slammed into the back of a eighteen-wheeler truck on the I-10 Freeway, near Desert Hot Springs, California. With 13 dead and another 31 injured, it is the deadliest crash in California in years.
Abnormally slow speeds had been noted on that section of the freeway, originally caused by utilities crews working on overhead lines.
As is common with tour buses, the seats did not have seat belts. A data recorder, similar to the “black box” in aircraft, is hoped to be recovered. IF recovered, the data will tell a fuller story of speed, braking, etc.
The Los Angeles times reports that 5 of the injured were in critical condition, with others suffering a range of injuries.
Attorney Ramin Soofer has extensive experience in this field, and is current representing a plaintiff in a recent multi-fatality crash involving a FedEx truck.
