November 15, 2011 Houston, Tx.: On November 4th an Abilene Christian University-owned bus veered off a Texas Highway and overturned, killing one passenger and critically injuring four others. The ElDorado National-manufactured bus was carrying 12 students and 4 faculty members to do mission work at a children’s home.
The bus driver lost control as the vehicle entered a bend near the town of Ballinger, 50 miles southwest of Abilene. The bus hit a concrete culvert and did a complete roll, ejecting several passengers before coming to rest upright on the shoulder of the highway.
“My client was ejected from the bus during the rollover and was seriously injured,” says bus accident attorney Rob Ammons . “We are actively involved in an investigation to determine the causes and events related to this rollover. We are engaging experts to determine whether defects in the bus’ safety system caused the serious injuries suffered by many of the passengers and the death of one young lady.”
