Wrong-Way Driver Collides With High School Band Bus Killing Three

U.S. News has reported a collision between a pickup truck and a bus transporting the band from Andrews High School located at 1400 NW Ave K, Andrews, TX 79714.

Three buses carrying the band members were traveling eastbound on Interstate 20 when the pickup truck, traveling the wrong direction, collided with two of the buses just outside of Big Spring, Texas on Friday, November 19, 2021. After hitting the second bus, the truck caught on fire. The buses were heading to a football game against Springtown High School located at 915 W Hwy 199, Springtown, TX 76082. 

Of the 25 students on board the first bus, two were in critical condition, as 11 were treated for minor injuries. The bus driver and the bandleader died from their injuries, as did the truck's driver, Nathan Paul Haile. None of the second bus's passengers were injured.

Financial Compensation For Bus Accident Victims

Attorney contributor and experienced personal injury lawyer Marc Lenahan represents individuals injured in bus and other auto accidents. He recently shared some info on the legal rights of victims injured in bus accidents.

"All drivers should follow the rules of the road to ensure they are safe along with the others on the road. Wrong-way drivers put all vehicles in danger while they break the law. Head-on collisions can often cause severe and fatal injuries, not including traumatic property damage. Each year approximately 10.2% of all traffic fatalities are caused by head-on collisions."

"Victims injured in an auto accident can expect to be faced with significant financial and personal burdens resulting from the accident. This is why they need to be aware of their options for financial compensation. While insurance coverage may provide relief from some of the burdens, victims may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit."

"In accidents involving buses and other commercial vehicles, victims may present a lawsuit against the driver, the bus company, or both parties. If the driver's negligence caused the accident, they could be held liable. If negligence by the company contributed to the accident, then those injured may have grounds for a lawsuit against the company. Victims and their families are advised to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to understand their legal options better."
