On the evening of March 26, 2013, a Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) maintenance employee Raul Apostol was critically injured after being struck by a bus inside one of VTA's bus divisions. Mr. Apostol was transported to a local hospital; tragically, he passed away from his injuries.

A full investigation of this accident is being conducted by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Traffic Investigation Unit, the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) and VTA. Per VTA policy, the employee driving the bus has been placed on administrative leave.

VTA General Manager Michael Burns: "I am deeply sorry for the loss of our employee. Our thoughts and prayers are with Raul's family, his colleagues, and all who have been affected by this tragic incident."
