On May 17, 2018, a school bus caused a deadly crash when it missed an exit and decided to make a sudden U-turn in a median. The school bus was filled with fifth-graders headed on a class field trip in New Jersey. The bus was carrying 38 students and seven adults from East Brook Middle School in Paramus. As the bus attempted to make the U-turn, it collided with a dump truck. As a result of the accident, one 10-year-old student and one teacher died. Forty-three others were injured, some critically.

Last Thursday morning, a three-vehicle collision claimed the life of an area motorist. One of the vehicles was an Aldine Independent School District bus that was headed towards Nimitz High School. The bus driver was not injured, and no students were on board. Another vehicle was an suv. The female driver was taken for treatment. The third vehicle was a pick-up truck. Its driver was transported by Life Flight to a hospital in the medical center, where he later died. The wreck occurred between about 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on FM 1960. Traffic in both directions was snarled afterwards. Evidently, the truck and suv collided, knocking the truck into the path of the bus.
