What the hell is going on out there? On Sunday a lot of people were injured when two Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) buses collided. According to a report by CBS DFW, around 11:00 in the morning near the intersection of Ledbetter Drive and Bronx Avenue, on DART bus stopped to pick up some passengers.

Suddenly another DART bus crashed into the back of it at a high rate of speed. How could you not see a bus in front of you at a stop?

Ten people were injured and taken into the hospital, including both drivers and several children. Fortunately there were no other vehicles involved in the accident.

Did Distracted Driving Cause This Wreck?

Distracted driving causes a significant number of the collisions we see in this office. We hope that a DART bus driver would not be talking on his cell phone and/or texting, but it happens.

Here’s a heartbreaking story: early this morning in Springtown a fourth grader tripped and fell running for a school bus and was tragically run over. The poor boy, 10 year old Haven Norton, was a student at Springtown Elementary School. It is not clear why the bus driver did not see the boy. My prayers go out to the family.

The bus driver who caused the triple fatality collision on April 11 has now admitted that he “possibly could have blacked out” before causing the bus to flip over.

Loyd Rieve, 65, originally said that the charter bus might have blown out a rear tire. But according to Sgt. Lonny Haschel of the Texas Department of Public Safety, there was not a mechanical failure.

A private charter bus taking retired people to a casino in Oklahoma flipped on its side this morning on State Highway 161 (the new President George Bush Turnpike) near Belt Line Road. The bus hit a barrier, careened to the left, hit another barrier, and overturned.

Noone was wearing seat belts, as suggested by a new federal rule passed just last year, and the passengers were thrown in every direction and out of the bus.
