A Waxahachie school bus rollover accident sent twelve children to area hospitals the morning of Tuesday, September 2.
According to reports, the school bus flipped just northeast of Waxahachie on Highway 879. Trooper James Colunga reported that seven of the children were transported to Childrens Medical Center of Dallas while another five were taken to Baylor Medical Center at Waxahachie.
One of the students aboard the bus called her father to explain what had happened. That child's father, Cedric Harrison, told authorities his daughter said the bus slipped and flipped over as it came around the curb of the road. Harrison reported that his daughter was safe and suffered no significant injuries, but there are still no details as to the conditions of the other students.
With the new semester having begun only a few weeks ago, drivers should take care to watch out for school buses on the road. This incident occurred on a rural road, but Dallas County's recent decision to issue tickets for stop-arm violators only highlights the importance of exercising extreme caution around school buses in all regions of the Dallas-Fort Worth region.
