The accident happened just before 7:30 am on Highway 186 near Spence County Road. A prison inmate bus traveling from the Segovia-Lopez Complex to the Willacy Facility was involved in an accident. The bus swerved to avoid a jackknifed trailer on the road and ended up rolling over and hitting a nearby pole.
16 inmates were injured in the accident, with several being taken to Valley Baptist Medical Center, and some to Harlingen Medical Center. The accident remains under investigation to determine cause and liability.
“I wish a swift and steady recovery for all motorists who were injured in this collision. Our prayers are with all subjects injured, their friends and families during such a difficult time,” said a car accident attorney.
