UPDATE: David Sanchez Killed in Shuttle Bus Accident on Interstate 95 in Washington DC

WASHINGTON DC — A shuttle bus accident killed one man and sent another to the hospital in critical condition in Washington DC on Sunday, March 23rd, 2014, according to a news report from The Shepherdstown Chronicle.

Authorities working close to the crash investigation have identified 24-year-old David Sanchez as the man that was killed when the shuttle bus he was a passenger in was struck by a white sedan before rolling while driving on interstate 95 around 3:30 in the morning on Sunday. The car that struck the van did not stay on the scene.

Scene of the Accident

David Sanchez was taken by helicopter to a hospital in northern Virginia where he died a short time after his arrival. Nine other people were also hurt in the accident.

The investigation into the accident is currently underway by local authorities.


The details of this accident are fuzzy, but if the news report is accurate in its account, the victims may have some questions about the trajectory of what they may go through. If the driver of the shuttle bus is found to be at fault, I would be interested to know a few details. Given the late hour of the accident, could drugs or alcohol be a factor? Now I’m not at all implying that this is how the accident happened, but commercial drivers are just as susceptible to drunk driving accidents, if this turns out to be the case, the trucking company will do all it can to distance themselves from the driver, saying that what they were doing was so outside the realm of their employment that they shouldn’t be held accountable for the accident, but the trucking company is responsible for the hiring and training of roadworthy employees. If this driver had a history, and they hired him at-risk at a lower salary, the company should be held liable if the facts line up correctly.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
