Posted on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 at 2:57 pm    

Authorities are still investigating a crash on US Highway 290 which involved an Austin ISD school bus last Tuesday night.

Austin Police Department responded to a wreck at the 4900 block of W. U.S. 290 under Loop 1. According to Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services, two people were reportedly hurt following the collision. They were transported to St. David’s South for treatment. Their injuries range from non-life threatening to serious.

Whether the victims are passengers in the school bus remains to be unknown. They were only identified as a man in his 60s and a man in his 20s.
No further information about the incident has been released as the investigation is still ongoing.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured victims. We are hoping and praying for a fast recovery of both parties.

Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.

Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims. For this reason, it is important that you take all the necessary precautions to avoid it.
