Ottawa Bus Crash Leads to Bylaw Charge

OTTAWA BUS ACCIDENT — Ottawa police have charged a OC Transpo bus driver after an accident that sent a pedestrian to hospital in April 2012.  The charge was: “failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian using an authorized pedestrian crossover.”

A 32 year old man was hit by the bus on April 4 near the Baseline and Woodroffe transit stations.  His serious injuries were life threatening.

Did you know that it is very difficult to settle a case against the City of Ottawa without starting a law suit?  Unlike traditional motor vehicle accidents where you may be able to settle directly with an adjuster, OC Transpo cases usually requires an experienced personal injury lawyer to get the case done.
