School bus pulls in front of semi truck, leaving child, bus driver seriously injured


A school bus carrying 11 students collided with a semi truck on Thursday, leaving one child and the bus driver seriously injured. 

The accident happened in Lubbock, Texas on March 4th near FM 1585 and CR 2500, near MLK Ave. 

According to ABC 11, the Lubbock-Cooper school bus driven by 52-year-old Margaret Hernandez failed to yield at the intersection and pulled out in front of an oncoming semi truck, causing the accident. The force of the impact ejected Hernandez, who was not wearing a seatbelt, from the bus and injured all 11 children. 

Two children were transported to the emergency room for serious injuries, but one child’s condition was downgraded to only minor injuries upon further evaluation. Both the driver and remaining child in serious condition are stable. The remaining 9 children all sustained only minor injuries.

The truck driver, 42-year-old Luis Sanchez, was not injured in the incident.
