Beware flying buses




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
