A fiery collision between a school bus and an SUV took place on Buffalo Gap Road last Friday.
Authorities said that a southbound Cadillac sports utility vehicle, for yet unknown reasons, veered into opposing lanes and collided head-on with a Wylie Independent School District bus that was heading north on Buffalo Gap Road near Forrest Hill Road. The impact was so great that caused the bus to flip on its side and burst into flames.
Fortunately, the bus driver and his students were able to exit the vehicle before it catches fire. Emergency crews rushed the bus driver to a hospital for treatment. His injuries were considered minor.
No other injuries were reported.
Investigators are still gathering information about the crash. Further details are to be released.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Abilene Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
