Parents address bus crash at Anna ISD meeting

By  | 

ANNA, TX -- Several parents showed up at the school board meeting in Anna Thursday night to voice their concerns about yesterday's school bus accident.

"I just don't want to see no other kids get hurt, I just want something to be done," said one parent.

Dr. Joe Wardell and members of the board listened as parents questioned bus safety and bus driver training. First Student, the company that operated the bus, released a statement saying:

"The driver followed correct procedures to evacuate the students to a safe location nearby while local authorities and the school district were contacted. Emergency response evaluated and released many of the students at the scene, while 16 were transferred to area hospitals where they were treated and released.

At First Student, safety is our core value. We take this incident extremely seriously. We are cooperating fully with the current police investigation and will also conduct a thorough internal investigation of our own. The driver has been suspended pending the outcome of both."

In all 18 students were taken to area hospitals, none with serious injuries.

Anna Police are still investigating what caused that crash.
