Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 22-Sep-2011
Aerial photos of an SUV following a collision with a Fort Bend ISD school bus in Missouri City, Texas show the roof crushed and completely torn from the top of the vehicle. Although the school bus had no children on it during the time of the collision, the SUV carried two children, ages two and three, officials said.
The driver of the crushed SUV was transported via Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital, according to Department of Public Safety representatives. The children were transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Witnesses on the scene of the Bus accident reported that the SUV rear ended the school bus, running off the road and crashing into a nearby fence soon after.
Rescue crews had to remove the entire SUV roof in order to free all three occupants from the wreckage, reports note. The children and SUV driver were trapped in the vehicle for almost 20 minutes, officials on site said.
The highway was closed for investigations and the names and conditions of the SUV occupants are still unknown. As a result of the crash, the bus sustained very little damage and its driver was uninjured, police said.
