Texas Police Release Updated Report on Train-School Bus Crash

KTLV reported that an updated crash report by the Athens Police Department in Texas said the bus driver did stop prior to driving onto the railroad tracks in a fatal crash last month.

According to the article, the bus driver, John Stevens, 78, met the state requirements by stopping before crossing the tracks.

Last month, Jan. 25, an Athens ISD school bus in Texas, crossed a railroad track with two students on board. The school bus was struck by an oncoming train and pushed for almost a quarter of a mile.

One student, Christopher Bonilla, 13, was ejected from the school bus and pronounced dead at the scene. His cousin, Joselyne Torres, 9, was critically injured in the crash and has since been reportedly released from the hospital.
