Two people are now dead and two other have been critically injured after a car plowed into a bench where bystanders were waiting for a bus in California. The Kia sedan crashed into a light before smashing into the bus stop bench. Four people were waiting for the bus at the time of the crash; the Kia struck all of the bystanders.
Witnesses told investigators that they first saw the car when it stopped at a red light. When the light turned green, “veered sharply to the right,” crashing into the bus bench. At this time, investigators are unaware of what caused the driver to suddenly change directions.
A twenty eight year old woman and seven year old girl died at the scene of the crash, while a thirty one year old man and a thirty-year-old woman were taken to Riverside Community Hospital to be treated for severe injuries. The forty five year old driver has been detained. According to police, there are no skid marks leading to the bus stop, meaning the driver did not attempt to apply the brakes. At this time, neither speed nor intoxication appear to be a factor in the crash; however police are still investigating the possibility that the driver was intoxicated.
