Florida bus accident lawyer alerts- FHP officials are looking into the cause of a crash involving a PSTA bus.

St. Petersburg, FL—A two-vehicle crash involving a Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) bus and another vehicle left a motorist in critical condition on Monday afternoon, March 22, 2010. The accident occurred at 66th Street North and 51st Avenue North, according to information provided by Tampa Bay Online.

Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) authorities reported 19-year-old Kassandra Ann Selig, traveling southbound in a 1994 Chevrolet on 66th Street North when she failed to notice the stopped PSTA bus in front of her. The bus was reportedly stopped in the outside lane of 66th Street North, allowing passengers to enter and exit the city vehicle, when Selig violently rear-ended the bus at approximately 4:42 p.m.

Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel responded to the scene of the bus-involved traffic collision to transport any injured victims to area hospitals for treatment. Selig was allegedly taken to Bayfront Medical Center to be treated for the critical injuries she suffered in the accident. FHP troopers reported that Selig was not wearing a seatbelt when she struck the rear of the bus. Emergency responders apparently transported two bus occupants to St. Petersburg General Hospital for injuries, which were deemed to be minor. Charges are pending the outcome of the State Highway Patrol’s probe into the injurious bus accident.
