There was a crash between a charter bus and a FedEx 18-wheeler in Palo Pinto County, Texas on December 9, 2022.  According to reports, the bus was traveling westbound on Interstate 20.  The tractor trailer was traveling eastbound on Interstate 20 when it entered the westbound lanes of travel and struck the bus.  The drivers of both vehicles were transported to local hospitals for treatment.  The accident remains under investigation.

Unfortunately, accidents involving charter busses have become more and more prevalent.  A Brandeis University shuttle bus crashed with 27 students on board in Waltham, Massachusetts on November 19, 2022.  There was a deadly crash between an SUV and a charter bus in College Station, Texas on November 20, 2022.  A charter bus caught fire in Bucksnort, Tennessee on November 11, 2022.

Safety considerations must take precedence to ensure that anyone relying on charter transportation remains safe.  Safe charter companies must consider take necessary precautions to ensure that their busses do not put the lives of passengers at risk.  The risks of catastrophic injury should always be considered by safe vessel operators.  When charter operators fail to account for the known hazards of the industry catastrophic injuries or deaths can result.  Safe companies must hire and train only individuals who can carry out the work without putting at risk the lives of dozens of passengers.  A responsible driver must drive at appropriate speeds based on the weather conditions, and only drive when it is safe to do so.  Failing to do so can have catastrophic results.
