Texas school bus accident leaves grandchild, grandmother dead

Brazoria County, Texas, was the scene of a tragic accident last week that killed a 60-year-old grandmother and her five-year-old grandson. Sources say a school bus with the Alvin Independent School District rear-ended the family's sedan as it was sitting at a stop light.

A 63-year-old man was also in the sedan. At the time of the news report, he was in stable condition at the hospital. Several other vehicles suffered collateral damage in the bus accident. Two additional victims were taken to the hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Fortunately, the sole occupant of the bus was its driver. The report does not say if the bus driver suffered any injuries in the accident. Reportedly, he is cooperating with police officials and is going to undergo testing for intoxication.

The accident occurred at the Highway 6 and County Road 99 intersection in Manvel at approximately 3:15 p.m. on a Monday as the bus was starting its afternoon route. At this time, authorities do not know what caused the accident, but they say speed may have been a factor.

Sources with the Alvin Independent School District expressed sorrow and grief over the accident, adding that school district officials intend to assist and cooperate fully with the accident investigation.

If it turns out that negligence of any kind caused the accident, victims will have several legal options at their disposal. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits can be initiated based on driver negligence or even manufacturer negligence if a faulty school bus part played a role. Consulting with a personal injury attorney is one of the best ways victims can find a remedy for their losses.
