Two people were injured in an accident after a Boerne bus flipped over on the Northwest Side of San Antonio.

Details about the Bus Accident

The San Antonio Express-News is reporting that the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office has indicated that a contributing factor in an accident that caused a school bus from the Boerne Independent School District to flip over was weather and wet roads.

A spokesman from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office has indicated that the accident happened at about 7:30 a.m. on Monday morning on the 25000 block of Ralph Fair Road.

Spokesman Keith also said that the bus was heading west on Interstate 10 when the bus lost control, fishtailed, and flipped onto its side before finally coming to a rest at the tree line on the side of the roadway.

The bus was carrying special needs children at the time of the accident to Champion high School. In addition to the driver and a school monitor, there were two high-school-aged children on the bus.

According to the authorities, neither of the children were injured, but both the driver of the bus and the monitor from the school were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
