Commentary on School Bus Accident on I-10 at Mercury in Houston
If nothing else, it's encouraging to see there may only be minor injuries here. However, folks need to keep in mind that injuries to adolescents aren't always the same as when they affect adults. Sometimes, a seemingly minor injury can prove more serious as the child grows up. That's why it's so important for families to ensure they take crashes as seriously as possible. As they say, it's best to hope for the best while preparing for the worst. I sincerely hope no one was seriously hurt here, but that's no reason to let important details slip through the cracks.
