Siblings Killed in Burnet ISD, Texas Bus Accident
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 24-Feb-2012
Two teens, a sister and brother, were killed in a Burnet ISD school bus accident on Thursday afternoon, when the vehicle they were in slammed into the back of the bus.
According to reports, 16-year-old Sierra Hardin was the driver of the Buick that rear-ended the Burnet ISD school bus.
The school bus was traveling down Highway 29 and paused to turn left onto County Road 252 when the passenger vehicle, driver by Hardin, crashed into the back of it. Police said Hardin tried to swerve to avoid the school bus accident in Burnet.
Hardin’s younger, 14-year-old brother, Caleb Hardin, was also killed in the school bus accident. Officials believe both teens died instantly. Sierra Hardin was wearing a seatbelt, reports noted. Caleb may not have been wearing his, authorities said.
One student aboard the school bus, which was carrying 13 students, was transported to the hospital with injuries related to the accident.
Although some of the most common types of Texas school bus accidents include pedestrians, getting on and off of a bus, a multitude of school bus accidents have been filling the news. With students exiting and entering buses frequently, driver attention, when buses are on the roadway and school zones are filled with children, is vital to protecting the occupants of surrounding vehicles and bus passengers alike.
