Like most large cities, Las Vegas citizens and visitors are transported on city buses. Las Vegas valley is serviced by a large bus system that carries in excess of 59,000,000 passengers per year. With the number of passengers using public transportation each year, there are always a number of passengers who are injured.
In April 2016, more than 20 people were injured when a pickup truck and RTC bus collided. According to a Las Vegas Sun report on the accident, these injuries were minor to critical. This demonstrates the sheer destructive power of such large vehicles, whether you are a passenger or have been struck by a negligent bus driver.
Las Vegas is the largest resort city in the world and with that distinction, there are an extraordinary number of tour buses operating out of the Las Vegas community transporting visitors to a number of attractions including Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. Again, because of the number of visitors riding tour buses in Las Vegas during any given year, there are always a number of accident and injuries involved with these buses. Accidents can come from accidents with other vehicles or simply and slip and fall exiting the bus.
Parents also entrust the lives of their children to ride school buses. These vehicles often travel during rush hour periods in the morning and afternoon, increasing the possibility of school buses being involved in an accident that injures or kills a child.
