San Angelo, TX Girl Hit by Car After Exiting School Bus


 

San Angelo, TX news reports stated that an 11-year old girl was hit and injured by a car after she had exited her school bus at about 7:33 a.m. on October 30, 2012. The girl was taken to a hospital and was not listed as a patient as of October 31, according to the news sources. 

Scene of the Accident


The accident happened at Roosevelt Avenue and Buchanan, where a northbound car hit her. The school bus had some flashing warning lights activated, but specific details were not given in the accident reports.

Commentary

Recently some cities, like Dallas, have started installing cameras on the stop signs that open when a school bus comes to a complete stop.  There have been several incidents where people are not coming to a complete stop and instead are driving around the school bus.  This puts children who are attempting to board or leave the school bus in serious danger.

These cameras will record cars around the school bus every time the bus comes to  stop and the stop sign on the side of the bus is opened.  Drivers who are caught on video driving around the bus will be sent a citation in the mail.  Hopefully, by getting the word out that many school buses are equipped with cameras will deter drivers from breaking the law and putting children’s lives at risk.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
