Bus Crash Hurts Motorist

A driver was hurt in El Cajon after the vehicle he was riding hit a bus that was heading west on Douglas Avenue.

Reports indicate that the vehicle driven by the injured motorist was pulling out near the intersection of Douglas and Van Houten avenues when he was struck by the bus.

The vehicle was said to be heading south.

When pulling out, drivers must survey oncoming traffic so they can determine whether there is an approaching vehicle and safely avoid it.

Bus accidents are especially risky to drivers of smaller vehicles as they are more prone to incurring serious injuries as they go up against a bigger and more powerful vehicle.
