Sixteen members of the Spartans Post Grad Academy Baseball team were injured Wednesday evening when their charter bus flipped over and crashed in Waller County, Texas.

Baseball Team Was Returning from Game at Ranger College in Austin

The April 27th crash occurred around 9:30 p.m., as 20 members of the Spartans Post Grad Academy Baseball team were returning from a game at Ranger College in Austin. According to media reports, the team’s charter bus rolled over along the U.S, 290 East and FM 362, roughly 46 miles outside of Houston.

“It was a single-vehicle accident. No other cars were involved,” Waller Police Captain Michael Lopez said during a media briefing. “We are still in the preliminary stages of the investigation, but the driver was transported to a local hospital.”

2 Players Flown to Herman Memorial Hospital in Houston

At least 16 players suffered some type of injury in the crash, including 12 taken to the hospital in ambulances. Two seriously injured players were airlifted to Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston, including one individual who had to be cut out of the bus by firefighters.

Fortunately, none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

So far, authorities have not identified any of the injured players or commented on their current condition. It’s also unclear if any remain hospitalized.

Charter Bus Operated by ABA Corporate Charter

Located in Tomball, Spartans Post Grad Academy is a post-high school baseball program for prospects hoping to eventually play in a more prestigious league. The team trains out of the Premier Baseball of Texas complex in the 20200 block of Cypress Rosehill Road.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the charter bus involved in Wednesday’s crash was operated by Houston-based ABBA Corporate Charter.  In 2019, the company was fined $4,700 for failing to drug test a prospective driver. Then in March 2022, an ABBA driver was pulled over and found to be operating a bus without the proper driver’s license.

It’s still not known what caused Wednesday night’s crash. The accident remains under investigation.
