There is an epidemic of Chicago bus accidents. You can read the stories about bus accidents in the Chicago Tribune or Sun Times. A recent analysis by CBS Channel 2 estimated that a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus crashes at least one time every day.
“Analysis: CTA Averages 1 Bus Crash Per Day”
Other headlines involving bus accidents are just as disturbing:
CBS 2 Chicago:
“School bus crashed after driver leaned out to vomit: lawsuit”
“9 hospitalized after CTA bus crash on West Side”
