Muleshoe — 9 Students Injured in Bus vs. Semi-Trailer Collision on Texas State Highway 214

Posted on Thursday, June 13th, 2019 at 8:46 pm    

At approximately 2:20 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, nine Muleshoe ISD students were injured in a bus vs. 18-wheeler collision that occurred in Bailey County, Texas.

According to initial reports, both the bus and the 18-wheeler were traveling northbound on Texas State Highway 214. As the 18-wheeler tried to pass the bus, the bus was about to turn west from the highway onto County Road 1028. As a result, the two vehicles collided.

Nine students and the driver of the 18-wheeler sustained minor injuries and were brought to nearby hospitals. The school bus driver, on the other hand, was uninjured.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is great to hear that the victims only suffered minor injuries in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. Vehicular accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

An accident involving a bus is a particular kind of vehicular accident, and it is fairly common even though buses are often deemed as a safe mode of transportation. According to the NHTSA, between 2000 and 2007, there have been 1,093 fatal bus accidents, and from this number, about 1,315 people died, and 3,471 were injured. In other words, about 137 bus-crash-related fatalities occur ever year.

Additionally, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is another kind of vehicular accident, and it is a deadly one just because of the fact that a tractor-trailer is one of the largest and most dangerous vehicles in the world. It is estimated that there are more than 2 million tractor-trailers roaming in the United States, and each year, they get involved in about 500,000 accidents. And since the size of a tractor-trailer is enormous, the results of this kind of accident are catastrophic, from a severe injury to death.

Vehicular accidents, especially bus and truck accidents, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/bus accidents/truck accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

Posted on Thursday, June 13th, 2019 at 8:02 pm    

At around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, a young boy was injured after he was struck by an 18-wheeler near Elgin, Texas.

According to initial reports, an 18-wheeler went around a stopped Elgin ISD bus on U.S. Route 290, near Christensen Road, thus hitting the young boy who was just exiting the bus. The boy was awake and conscious when officers arrived, and he was airlifted to a hospital as a precaution.

The boy did not seem to suffer any serious injury, and as of right now, he is recovering.

The driver of the 18-wheeler remained on the scene and cooperated with the investigation.

It is great to hear that the child did not suffer any critical injuries in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident.

Additionally, there are five states that had the most number of pedestrian fatalities in 2017, and these are California, Florida, New York, Arizona, and Texas. These states accounted for about 43% of pedestrian fatalities during the first half of 2017 despite the fact that they are home to only 30% of the U.S. population. The GHSA also claims that children and the elderly are the most vulnerable to this kind of accident.

Moreover, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is another kind of vehicular accident, and it is a deadly one just because of the fact that a tractor-trailer is one of the largest and most dangerous vehicles in the world. It is estimated that there are more than 2 million tractor-trailers roaming in the United States, and each year, they get involved in about 500,000 accidents. And since the size of a tractor-trailer is enormous, the results of this kind of accident are catastrophic, from a severe injury to death.

According to initial reports, Pflugerville ISD School Bus #37 collided with a stationary vehicle at the intersection of North Heatherwilde Boulevard and Texas State Highway 45. The bus was carrying 25 students from Dearing Elementary School at the time of the crash.

EMS responded to the report of the crash, and they checked the students and the other occupants to verify that they were all okay.

As soon as everyone was cleared, a replacement bus was sent to the scene to begin loading students.

Investigation is still ongoing.

It is great to hear that no one was seriously injured in this accident. Unfortunately, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. Vehicular accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

An accident involving a bus is a particular kind of vehicular accident, and it is fairly common even though buses are often deemed as a safe mode of transportation. According to the NHTSA, between 2000 and 2007, there have been 1,093 fatal bus accidents, and from this number, about 1,315 people died, and 3,471 were injured. In other words, about 137 bus-crash-related fatalities occur ever year.
