Jay Alexander Markley Killed in Waco, TX, School Bus Accident

Waco, TX -- May 12, 2017, Jay Alexander Markley was killed following an accident where his vehicle and a school bus collided at an intersection.

The Waco Police Department released early investigation results following the accident which happened at around 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of 26th Street and Bosque Boulevard.

According to police officials, a Waco ISD school bus was traveling southbound along 26th with no students on-board at the time. As the bus crossed through the intersection, it collided with a red car traveling eastbound along Bosque.

23-year-old Markley, the driver of the car, suffered critical injuries in the collision. He was taken to Baylor Scott and White Hillcrest where he was later pronounced dead around noon. The driver of the bus was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Police did not report any charges or citations resulting from the accident, and it's unclear what caused the crash. Investigations are ongoing.

Commentary

Looking at photos from the accident scene and the details currently available to the public, there's only one thing I can be relatively certain about. Given the position the vehicles ended up in, it seems as though both vehicles had to have been traveling at or around the speed limit when this occurred, meaning they probably weren't turning or accelerating from a stopped position. Ultimately this suggests that one of the vehicles involved in the incident ran through a red light. Now, who this may have been is impossible to say at this moment. There needs to be a more thorough investigation to determine what exactly happened before any further conclusions can be drawn.
