The investigation is ongoing and police have not yet ruled out charges against the bus driver.
Police Appear Skeptical of Driver’s Story Following Los Chavez Autobuses Bus Accident
If the driver is telling the truth and there was indeed a mechanical problem with the bus, Houston-based Los Chavez Autobuses will bear responsibility to the injured bus passengers for negligently failing to maintain the bus.
Still, however, the driver will likely also be at fault for failing to keep a safe following distance and maintaining safe control of the bus.
Our Bus Accident Team is continuing to investigate the crash and will post any updates as soon as they become available.
