Special Needs Transportation

Video shows inside of bus during accident

Posted on November 2, 2012

SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio Independent School District last month released video footage from inside a special-needs bus that plunged off an overpass, according to a story on kvue.com.

As previously reported, a 7-year-old boy and two adults were hospitalized for injuries they sustained in the incident. It was not known if the boy on the bus has special needs. Police Sgt. Javier Salazar said that the bus fell about 15 feet to the access road below after colliding with a car.

The two videos obtained by KENS 5 show the inside of the bus as it collides with the car and begins to crash through the overpass barrier, and the bus driver’s reaction. District spokeswoman Leslie Price told the news source that the video cuts out before the bus hit the access road due to the significant impact to the bus.
