College Station, TX – Students Hurt In Vehicle Collision On Greens Prairie Trl
College Station, TX (August 24, 2019) On the afternoon of August 23rd, a vehicle collision involving a school bus occurred at the intersection of Greens Prairie Trail and Greens Prairie Road. A pickup truck struck a school bus that was traveling eastbound on Greens Prairie Trail. The bus carried about 20 to 30 students at the time of the accident.
When emergency crews arrived, they found two to three students complaining of pain. The students’ parents took them to local area hospitals for evaluation and treatment.
Authorities are still investigating the incident, but the driver of the pickup truck failed to stop at a stop sign and received a citation.
We wish all of the victims a complete recovery.
Car and Bus Accidents in Texas
Studies show that about one-third of car collisions that happen at intersections occur because drivers run stop signs, which equates to about 40 percent of all traffic collisions nationwide. Drivers run stop signs because they’re distracted, under the influence, in a rush, or fatigued. Sometimes drivers get aggressive when they’re in a rush and expect others to yield to them as they break the law. Therefore, it’s important that all drivers remain alert of their surroundings to protect themselves from other reckless drivers.
