Pictures of kindergarteners getting on the bus for the first time are frequent Facebook posts at this time of the year. As kids go off to school, some parents worry whether personally driving their children to school is a safer alternative to the school bus.
To add to worries this week in North Austin, emergency crews responded to a school bus crash. Fortunately, there were no injuries, but crews did take the time to evaluate 35 people at the scene.
While there were no injuries in the recent accident, Texas bus crashes can easily lead to serious injuries. Speed and equipment failure are some common causes of these accidents. Although, when other drivers on the road are speeding or not paying attention to the road it can easily cause a crash.
