Simi Valley, CA – Five Injured in Multi-Vehicle Crash with Bus on 118 Freeway

Simi Valley, CA (September 3, 2019) – A charter bus carrying school-age children were involved in a large multi-vehicle collision that took place on Tuesday morning, September 3rd in Simi Valley. The collision happened on the 118 Freeway near Madera Road at around 9:00 a.m.

The Venture County Fire Department stated that the students were on a field trip at the time of the rash which involved four vehicles and 43 people. The bus contained 33 children and seven adults traveling from Horizon Elementary School in Bakersfield to the Ronald Regan Presidential Library.

At least five people suffered injuries, four of whom were transported to a nearby hospital. Neither the ages nor the current conditions of the victims were released. The cause of the crash is actively under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time.

Multi-Vehicle Collisions in California

In 2012, the state of California saw 341 fatal collisions involving large trucks, and hundreds more suffered serious injuries. That number was reported to have made up 7.3% of all fatal truck accidents across the United States. Due to the sheer nature and power of such large vehicles, it seems fairly obvious that multi-vehicle accidents in California, particularly those involving a large truck, may often be among the most severe types of collisions.
