Lubbock —Woman Dies After Getting Hit By Bus on Alcove Avenue

Posted on Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 2:26 am    

A woman was pronounced dead after getting struck by a vehicle on Alcove Avenue early Tuesday morning.

At around 6:30 a.m., Lubbock police officers responded to a bus accident in the area of 19th Street and Alcove Avenue. Details surrounding the crash are unclear at this time but it was confirmed that a female pedestrian died after a school bus hit her. Her identification will not be released until her immediate family has been notified.

According to initial reports, there were students on the bus during the time of the collision. Fortunately, none of them sustained injuries.

Authorities temporarily shut down the eastbound lanes of 19th Street at Alcove Avenue and at Inler Avenue for clearing. No charges have been made as the investigation is still ongoing.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the families of the deceased victim. May God grant you with the strength you need to go through this difficult time.

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.
