This is a situation that would make any parent scared.My San Antonio reports that a bus driver got into a car crash and then fled the accident. The driver caused the accident by blowing through a stop sign and then forcing a semi truck to swerve out of the way. This sent the truck into a smaller car, killing the driver. This is a reminder that just because someone drives a school bus doesn't mean they are qualified to drive around children and keep them safe. In fact it can often be the opposite. This driver didn't have any children in his bus, but the fact that he blew a stop sign, caused a death and then fled the scene is enough to say that this person was not qualified to drive a vehicle that typically carries children. This is a scare for San Antonio drivers, along with people all over the country, considering the amount of buses and semi trucks that are flying around on the roads.
Recently, a motorcyclists got into an accident with an 18 wheeler, where the motorcyclist eventually died from the injuries. It's unclear whether or not the 18 wheeler driver will face charges, since it looks like the driver had a green light, but it was trying to turn left, which is not allowed without a protected arrow. This is concerning, because an 18 wheeler is obviously substantially larger than a motorcycle, so you can imagine the fear that many motorcyclists have when seeing something like this. However, there are a few things to take away from this story, legally and in order to stay safe in the future.
