A deadly car collision involving a charter bus left at least two dead and others injured. The collision occurred in Walker County, Texas on I-45 and FM 1375. At approximately 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, passengers in a bus witnessed a maroon SUV traveling northbound lose control and go airborne across a median. The passengers screamed and ran to the back of the bus as the SUV struck a silver car ahead of the bus, causing the silver car to slam into the bus. The silver car also struck a black Nissan Altima. Investigators described the scene as “horrific.”
Tragically, the driver of the silver car, a 51-year-old woman, perished in the collision. The driver of the SUV died on impact. Additionally, two passengers on the bus were taken to the hospital. The passengers consider themselves lucky that no one on the bus died and only a couple were injured. Seventy-five people were aboard the bus.
Witnesses to the collision reported that the SUV was driving recklessly before the collision occurred. Investigators are still attempting to find out what was wrong with the man driving the SUV.
