Earlier this month, a Texas car accident involving a van carrying an estimated 30 people crashed, killing ten and injuring twenty others. According to a local news , the accident occurred in South Texas, about 80 miles north of the Mexico border. Evidently, the driver of the van was attempting to make a right-hand turn when they lost control and crashed into a utility pole.

All passengers aboard the van are believed to be undocumented immigrants. The crash occurred less than a week after the Texas Governor issued an executive order preventing private transportation companies from providing transit to migrants. Some believe the Governor’s orders may have limited safer forms of transportation, resulting in the accident victims cramming into the overcrowded van.

The accident occurred when two Independent School District busses were approaching the intersection of Bay Street extension and 25th Avenue North at around 4:30 p.m. Evidently, the first school bus pulled up to the intersection and stopped at a stop sign. The second school bus failed to stop in time, rear-ending the first bus. Authorities have not released the total number of students on board the busses, and the accident remains under investigation.

While law enforcement has not yet released the official details of the accident, preliminary news reports offer conflicting information. Initially, police indicated that seven people were injured in the accident. According to one report, emergency responders took two of the injured students to the hospital, and the other five were released to the care of their parents. However, another report indicated that four students and the driver of the school bus were hospitalized, and two students were immediately released to their parents.

There is no indication of the seriousness of the students’ injuries. However, it appears everyone who was admitted to the hospital was released that same day. All students involved in the accident attended Levi Fry Intermediate School.
