By now, I am sure all of you have heard of the horrific accident that occurred on March 23 that involved a Mount Pleasant Independent School District bus, an 18-wheeler, and a private vehicle
I have said from the onset that the bus driver should be considered a hero.
Had he not been alert enough to swerve out of the way of the oncoming eighteen wheeler, this situation could have been much worse. Instead of two lives lost, there could have been many more, including students, who died as a result of this accident.
As a former coach, who drove buses for sport teams, I know how difficult it is to maintain focus on the road, especially late in the evening, after a long day at a sporting event. The fact that he was alert enough and swerved to avoid a head on collision is nothing short of heroic.
