According to the Bexar County Sherriff’s Office, the July 26th accident occurred around 5:15 p.m., as the charter bus was heading south on 1604 on its way to a church retreat. The driver attempted to make a U-turn at Schuwirth Road south of I-10 but was t-boned by a Honda Accord that was traveling north along 1604.

The bus then collided with a pole.

Injured Passengers Included Several Children

All 14 people aboard the bus and the driver of the passenger vehicle were transported to area hospitals. Three victims suffered severe injuries, including one person who was airlifted from the scene due to limited ambulance capacity.
