What was supposed to be a fun field trip to a farm turned into a nightmare for many after a school bus accident in northeast Harris County. The accident happened outside of Old McDonald’s Farm around 10:30 a.m. one morning last week.
A small sedan crashed into the back of a school bus carrying five adults and 29 children. All 34 individuals were taken to the hospital after the accident to be checked out as a precautionary measure. All 34 were released from the hospital the same day. The driver of the sedan was also transported to the hospital and his or her condition is unknown. The bus only suffered minor injuries in the accident, but the sedan was heavily damaged.
After Houston’s deadly school bus accident that killed two students earlier this year, many parents have been worried about school bus safety. In that accident, a school bus plunged over a bridge overpass. Many are blaming those deaths on defective bridge railings that had not been tested for decades. Some experts say that the railings should have been able to prevent the bus from going over the bridge.
