School Bus Rolls Over after Hit by Truck


school bus accident

According to KXAN, a bus traveling through an intersection near Mitchell Elementary was hit by a utility truck that failed to stop at a stop sign, causing it to roll over.

No Kids on Bus at the Time

Two adults were present in the bus at the time of the accident, according to Georgetown ISD. The bus was on its way to pick up middle school students and was not carrying any children when it was struck at around 7:00 a.m. The driver and passenger were transported to Seton Williamson County hospital to be evaluated for injuries.

KXAN did not report on the status of the two individuals.

Georgetown ISD in a statement following the crash says they have seven total buses with 3-point seat belts and have seven new buses on order that will have 3-point seat belts. The driver of the bus was wearing a seat belt.

Seat belt Safety Information

The following information is provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • For adults and older children, seat belt use is the most effective way to save lives and reduce injuries in crashes, yet millions do not buckle up on every trip.
  • A total of 21,022 passenger vehicle occupants died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2014.
  • More than half (range: 53%-59%) of teens (13-19 years) and adults aged 20-44 years who died in crashes in 2014 were unrestrained at the time of the crash.
