Faulty Electrical Vault: Modern-day Road mines in LA

Witness the evolution of modern-day land mine-- faulty electrical vault. It is no longer underneath, but right beside LA roads. It still has the same lethal elements, but has a subtle look of innocence. You cannot blame just anyone, but it can harm any passersby.

On Tuesday morning, an electrical transformer vault exploded near the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), injuring an oncoming Metro bus driver. The explosion even caused damage to the exterior of a nearby building at Westwood Boulevard and Weyburn Avenue.

Luckily, the bus driver didn't suffer amputated leg or arm, but minor injuries. There was also no fire that affected the facilities of UCLA. Minutes after, rescuers arrived at the scene and transported the driver to nearby hospital.
Los Angeles Police has notified the Department of Water and Power regarding the accident.

Should the bus driver have suffered serious injuries, liable parties will have to compensate the motorist’s medical expenses and loss income. Most likely, the government will face responsibility in the accident, and can enable the driver to recover damages. The bus driver can also file Worker’s Compensation claim to receive medical coverage.

As you can see, bus accidents occur even in the absence of a speeding or DUI fellow driver. It can happen while traversing a dangerous zone or in the presence of an unlikely power supply. Count the odds when heading downtown Los Angeles and pray there is no catastrophe waiting to happen on your vehicle.

Should you encounter a freak accident on Westwood, you can consult with a Personal Injury lawyer in Los Angeles to help you. Your Bus accident attorney will assist you on filing a lawsuit and asserting compensation for your losses.
