Concord school bus slams into home, stuck accelerator to blame

Legal news for California bus accident attorneys. No one was injured when a school bus slammed into a Concord home.

Concord, CA—A stuck accelerator reportedly caused a school bus to smash into a Concord home on Monday, March 22, 2010. Thankfully, neither the residents nor the three adults on the bus were injured during the wreck at 8:30 a.m., in the 2900 block of Gillet Avenue, as reported by the San Jose Mercury News.

Concord police officials reported the bus driver was dropping off passengers at the nearby Marchus School when the bus’ accelerator suddenly stuck. Unable to stop, the bus slammed into the home. Luckily, no students were on board at the time. The three adults on the bus managed to escape the wreck without injury. One of the residents in the home at the time likened the impact of the crash to the Northbridge earthquake that hit Los Angeles in 1994. The resident unknowingly escaped injury when she left the room that the bus hit to check on her Chihuahua. The other resident of the home was in the backyard when the collision occurred, escaping injury. It is unknown what caused the accelerator to stick on the San Ramon Valley Unified School District bus. Police officials are reportedly conducting a full investigation into the wreck.
