Tour Bus Accident in Seguin TX

Terry Bryant has been retained to represent a victim injured in a collision on a Turimex Internacional Bus on December 16, 2013 around 10:40 p.m. Monday night, in Seguin, Texas, which is about 30 miles northeast of San Antonio.  According to Seguin Police Department, the driver of the commercial bus was allegedly in the process of passing up a semi-truck when he lost control while changing lanes in the 5300 block of Interstate 10, causing the bus to go into an embankment, possibly hitting a cement guardrail in the process.  Damage to the front of the bus made it difficult for emergency personnel to get to the passengers on board.  EMS and fire crews had to force the back door open to extrapolate passengers from the bus.  Of the 20 passengers on board, 13 were injured, including children ages 2, 12, and 14.  One victim was airlifted to University Hospital in San Antonio while the other injured were taken to Guadalupe Regional Medical Center.  The exit ramp from SH130 to I-10 was shut down for nearly four hours while emergency crews worked to remove the debris from the collision.  Turimex Internacional offers passenger service between Mexico and the U.S.
