DUI accidents occur with frequency. All too often, there are serious injuries and fatalities involved with such crashes. Many times, the people who are charged with the DUI seem to escape injury or death, but that is not always the case as one accident shows.
In South Los Angeles, a man has died after being thrown from his motorcycle and being run over by a school bus. He was riding a 2007 Harley Davidson Motorcycle at the time of the accident.
The accident occurred on the Harbor (110) Freeway on Friday night, near El Segundo Boulevard. The motorcyclist, identified as Johnny Mosley, 50, and was from Bakersfield, California.
While the identity of the bus driver was not released, he did remain on scene and cooperated with authorities. Mosley was pronounced dead at the scene.
The bus was transporting passengers at the time, but it is unclear where the bus was from. Although it was a school bus, it is not clear whether the passengers were students or if the bus was being used for another purpose. It was also not reported whether or not any on the bus suffered any injuries as a result of the accident.
Preliminary investigation indicates that DUI on the part of the motorcyclist was a factor to the collision.
