Scary moments in Houston area school bus crash

If you drive about 25 minutes northeast of Houston, you will come to Crosby, Texas. The Harris County town of about 2,200 residents is the site of a recent school bus crash that frightened parents and resulted in injuries to 14 students.

None of the injuries were life-threatening, according to various media reports. The veteran bus driver apparently swerved to avoid a crash with another vehicle, sending her vehicle filled with 52 middle- and high school students rolling over in a ditch. 

A recent news media article contains a link to video taken inside the bus at the moment of the crash. Children can be heard screaming as the bus tilts and topples on to its side.

The driver was apparently injured as she unclipped her seatbelt while calling emergency services.

The 25-year veteran driver can be heard calmly asking students if anyone wants to get off at a stop right before the bus topples. The newspaper report indicates she was looking in a rear-view mirror when a truck moved into the bus's path.

The driver swerved, sending the bus onto its side in a ditch in the rural outskirts of town. Crosby is a short distance southeast of Lake Houston.

No one has been charged in the Sept. 23 accident. Parents are undoubtedly relieved that none of the injuries were serious.

If you or your loved one is hurt in a bus accident, or collision with a truck or car, you can speak with a Houston personal injury attorney about your best legal options.
