One Injured in Bus Accident on Gray Street in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- November 9, 2021, one person was injured due to an accident where a vehicle and a bus collided along Gray Street.

In their initial reports, authorities said that a Dodge Charger was westbound along Gray and pulled onto the parking lane. While there, a passing bus reportedly sideswiped the car. Reports did not say how the collision occurred, only that the drivers gave conflicting statements.

A 31-year-old man in the Dodge had reportedly incapacitating injuries due to the crash. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Bus Accident on Gray Street in Houston

It's a bit frustrating when victims and families have to deal with reports like these. They seem to be complete, yet the explanation is essentially that the officer doesn't know what happened. That's not exactly my idea of a "complete" investigation. This scenario is more common than folks many realize, and it's one of the reasons I'm so adamant about independent investigations. They can often catch important details that authorities let slip through the cracks.

For example, I had folks come to me about a similar situation in which an 18-wheeler and a car crashed at a traffic light. Both drivers blamed each other, and the investigating officer basically threw up his hands and said, "Y'all figure it out." Well, it didn't take us long to find a nearby business with a security camera that caught the whole thing on video. They fortunately had saved that particular video, and it clearly showed the truck run the light. Thanks to that, what would have been a frustrating case of he-said-she-said became a clear story with verifiable proof. Is it possible that similar steps could clear things up here?
