Today, sadly twelve people were killed and three injured in a traffic accident involving a church vehicle in central Texas, authorities have confirmed. According to authorities, the church bus was traveling south on Highway 83 near Concan, Texas, when it was involved in a head-on collision with a Dodge pickup truck.

The bus was carrying 14 passengers from First Baptist New Braunfels. Photographs and video from the scene showed major damage to the front drivers' sides of the little white bus and pickup truck, which are the parts of the vehicles which appear to have collided. The rear of the bus was up on the guardrail and major debris was scattered onto the grass below.

The crash happened approximately 12:20 p.m. Wednesday near Garner State Park, approximately 75 miles outside of San Antonio. Church officials told ABC News the van was returning to New Braunfels from a Baptist encampment near Leakey, Texas, where members were attending a Bible study. In a statement, Governor Greg Abbott extended condolences to the victims and their families.

Such horrible times make us think. When we take time to think about this accident, we must ask ourselves, who, if anyone, was actually at fault and responsible for this tragedy. Surely, we think, someone must be at fault for such an accident. When we have such questions, our thoughts should turn to who can help us figure out exactly what happened, and how, if possible, it could have been prevented.

The New Braunfels bus accident lawyers, and their legal team, can help you find answers to these questions. When there is a bus crash, the passengers are almost never at fault. Sometimes, one driver or the other was negligent or even reckless. Sometimes, there were problems with the brakes or with the tires of one vehicle or the other. Sometimes, the seat belts, or lack thereof, on the bus could have been designed better. Sometimes, if there were seat belts on the bus, no one told the passengers to wear them. Sometimes, elderly passengers need extra help keeping safe while they are on a bus. This accident could have been for any, or none, of these reasons.

Once you have processed this awful tragedy, we can help you look for the reasons this sad thing happened. Give us a call and we can talk about your situation and your options at this time of grief.
