METRO Investigating Fatal Morning Bus Accident

METRO is placing all necessary resources at the disposal of safety and police personnel who are investigating a fatal accident that occurred on State Highway 288 at MacGregor.  Based on preliminary information bus operator David Sayers appears to have lost control of the vehicle after it struck a dump-truck that was also headed south on the same stretch of road.  He was returning the bus to the Hiram Clarke Bus Operations Facility at the end of his shift around 8:30 a.m. when the accident occurred. There were no customers on board and no reports of other injuries.

METRO president and CEO George Greanias reached out to employees saying, “This is a tragic day.   Our first thoughts are with David’s family and co-workers. We will do all we can to support them through this difficult time. We are deeply committed to a safe transit system for customers, operators and our community.”
