At least six people were injured earlier today, after an 18-wheeler collided with a Greyhound Bus near The Woodlands, Texas.
Greyhound was Stalled on I-45 South at Lake Woodlands Drive
Twenty-six people, including the driver, were aboard the Houston-bound Greyhound Bus on November 14th, when it stalled along I-45 South at Lake Woodlands Drive around 2:30 a.m.
The southbound semi-truck crashed into the back of the Greyhound shortly before 5:00 a.m., as the bus remained disabled on the outside shoulder. According to media reports, the 18-wheeler also took out a large traffic sign and left its load of water bottles scattered across the highway.
5 Greyhound Passengers, 18-Wheeler Driver taken to Area Hospital
Paramedics transferred six people, including five Greyhound Bus passengers and the 18-wheeler driver, to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Fortunately, none of their injuries are considered life-threatening.
The remaining passengers were placed on a second Greyhound Bus to continue the trip to Houston.
I-45 Greyhound Bus Crash Remains Under Investigation
So far, it’s not clear why the 18-wheeler veered onto the outside shoulder and slammed into the bus. According to the Montgomery County Sherriff’s Department, the Greyhound’s emergency lights were on and its triangles were out when the collision occurred.
The accident investigation remains active, and authorities are working to determine if driver intoxication, speeding, or other factors might have contributed to the crash.
