My motor vehicle was hit by a bus, what do I do now?

Public transportation vehicles are under a much higher care of duty than everyday drivers of motor vehicles. If you are struck by a bus while in your car, or if your motor vehicle is damaged by a public transportation vehicle while it is parked, follow the same procedure for any other accident with any other motor vehicle you may be involved in and call the police and emergency personnel. If the driver of the bus attempts to leave, get his name, bus number and route name or at the very least the bus number and name of the route which is usually located on the front of the bus.

After obtaining medical attention for any personal injuries you may have sustained, contact your insurance company and open a claim for damages to your vehicle and any related medical expenses from the accident.

Major Rhode Island Roadways:

Interstate 95: I-95: I-95 is the main north-south Interstate Highway on America’s east coast. In Rhode Island, I-95 travels from the Connecticut border near Westerly through Warwick and Providence and then on to the Massachusetts border in Pawtucket. Routes I-195 and I-295 (discussed below) are spurs of I-95.

Interstate 195: I-195: Travelling a combined 40.1 miles in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, I-195 leaves its junction with I-95 in Providence then heads east to a junction with I-495 and Route 25 on Massachusetts’ Cape Cod. The section of I-195 in downtown Providence is being replaced. The new route will lie just south of the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier.

Interstate 295: I-295: At a length of just 26.58 miles in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I-295 is short but vital. From its southern terminus in Warwick, it forms an essential western beltway around Providence before ending to the north in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Plans are underway to supplement I-295 with an eastern beltway around Providence.

Other roadways where accidents typically happen in Rhode Island: Route 44, Route 6, Route 24, Route 1, Route 138, and Route 4
