Houston – Metro bus involved in a Lamar street collision

Posted on Friday, December 21st, 2018 at 11:00 am    

Authorities are still investigating a Metro bus collision near Lamar and Fannin streets. According to authorities, the crash happened at around 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Initial reports say that the Metro bus was driving downtown Houston when, for unknown reasons, an unidentified vehicle crashed into the bus as they head towards the intersection. The impact sent the bus into a nearby building. As a result, the bus driver and three passengers sustained non-life-threatening injuries. They were transported to the nearest hospital for treatment.

No arrests have been made as police are still determining the cause of the crash.

Crash-related Injuries

The scene of an accident could be chaotic and sometimes overwhelming. Before doing anything else, the first thing you should do is examine yourself for any possible injury, bleeding, and pain. If you are not injured and are able to move, stay out of the traffic and keep those who were fatally injured away from further harm. Doctors say that victims who sustained serious or life-threatening injuries should be immediately transferred to the nearest hospital. The first hour following the accident is extremely impactful to their chances of survival. Lastly, call the police and request for an ambulance. Officials will document the scene and create an accident report which will help your insurance provider make a decision about your claims.
