We here at the Current
don't typically get bogged down in the afternoon traffic report. But when short buses start dropping from the sky, we take notice.
This afternoon a student and two SAISD staffers were injured when their bus crashed through the I-37 guardrail downtown, taking a 15 foot nosedive onto the sidewalk outside of the Comfort Inn Hotel & Suites (no, seriously
). According to authorities at the scene, the passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries. The E-N
has more details over here
The crash marks the (hopeful) end of what's been a rough week for SAISD. Monday morning an SAISD driver died when her bus collided
with a Judson ISD bus on the far East Side. Officials are hoping pending autopsy results will help them determine whether the driver had a medical emergency or died because of injuries suffered in the crash. None of the students in either bus were seriously hurt. -- Michael Barajas
