Accident Leaves Elderly Woman Seriously Injuries
A 72-year-old woman sustained serious injuries after being involved in a bus accident on September 14th.
The accident occurred on a Tuesday in Irvine on Kilwinning Road around 4 p.m., per reports.
It was reported that a yellow shuttle bus was driving on Kilwinning Road when a vehicle made a sudden U-turn in front.
As a result of the bus hitting the emergency brakes, one of the passengers was thrown from her seat and seriously injured.
The 72-year-old female passenger was hospitalized with serious, unspecified injuries.
No further details have been disclosed and the accident is still under investigation.
U-turns are basically left turns which account for nearly a quarter of all vehicle crashes according to NHTSA.
In addition, those who are making the u-turn are often the person at fault. This is because those who initiate a U-turn must allow for enough time to make sure they don’t impact the flow of traffic from the opposite direction.
