Two SEPTA buses collided on Tuesday afternoon in the Lawncrest neighborhood of Philadelphia. The collision occurred around 4 pm in front of the Lawncrest Recreation Center when a CCT bus, which provides transportation to disabled individuals and senior citizens, rear-ended a full-size SEPTA bus. Two people sustained personal injuries in the collision, and the cause of the collision is unknown.
SEPTA provides transportation to millions of customers who use the vehicles for commuting purposes and other excursions beyond work. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of SEPTA, their vehicles travel several times during the day and may become involved in accidents which cause riders to incur personal injuries, catastrophic injuries, and even fatalities. SEPTA has a responsibility to their customers and occupants of other vehicles in transit to ensure their vehicles are properly maintained and travel in accordance to traffic laws in place.
