2 Students Among Three people Injured in Palo Alto Accident at Middlefield Road and Colorado Avenue

Palo Alto, California – Two students were among three people injured in a Palo Alto Bus Accident at Middlefield Road and Colorado Avenue on Wednesday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Shortly before 8 a.m. February 10, a white Ford F-750 truck was traveling northbound on Middlefield Road when he is suspected to have run a red light and collided with a Palo Alto Unified School District bus heading west on Colorado Avenue.

The impact pushed the bus off the side of the road and it slammed into a traffic light pole.

The truck also went off the side and struck two metal poles.

A passenger in the truck was transported to a hospital with multiple lacerations.

The bus was carrying elementary school students. Two of them were treated at the scene for minor lacerations.

Authorities said the driver of the truck, a 46-year-old San Jose man, was cited for driving without a license.

No further details were available.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”

Mr. Khodaverdian is the recipient of numerous accolades including one of the: Top 10 Wrongful Death Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Motor Vehicle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019; Top 10 Truck Accident Settlements in CA in 2019, and Top 10 Motorcycle Accident Settlements in CA in 2019.
