People hire and use tour buses for any number of reasons, but one of the most fundamental regards safety. Taking the responsibility of driving away from several individuals and allowing a professional to handle it only makes sense, at least most of the time. Unfortunately, that is not how things worked out yesterday when at least 13 people were injured in a Fairfield tour bus accident that authorities continue to investigate.
According to the authorities, this Fairfield tour bus accident occurred yesterday afternoon at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Lyon Road south of Cherry Glen Road in Solano County. No specific details were provided by the police other than the facts that the tour bus was the only vehicle involved in the accident and that 13 people had to be taken from the scene by ambulance. None of the names of those involved were released.
