Texas A&M Staff Member Critically Injured By Texas A&M Shuttle Bus

January 14, 2009

According to in College Station, Texas, a Texas A&M staff member is listed in critical condition after police say she was struck by a Texas A&M shuttle bus Wednesday afternoon.

According to St. Joseph Regional Health Center, Michelle Hayes, a Business Assistant for the Psychology Department at Texas A&M, was transferred to a high level trauma center.

According to Texas A&M Police Chief Elmer Schneider the accident happened around noon at the intersection of Joe Routt Boulevard and Throckmorton Street.  Schneider said details are sketchy at this time, but it appears the bus had left a bus stop on Throckmorton, stopped at a stop sign and was attempting to make a right turn when it hit Hayes. Obviously, the investigation is still ongoing.

I would respectfully request that you please keep Ms. Hayes and her family in your prayers during this difficult time.

I would be interested to see the results of the investigation into this bus accident to see if the driver of the bus obeyed all of the Texas traffic laws when operating this bus.  Additionally, it is important to see if the bus driver had received proper training and how long they have been driving a bus. Finally, it is also important to take a detailed look at the intersection to see if any other obstructions exist at this intersection. 

It is important that Ms. Hayes family immediately contact a highly qualified bus accident attorney to protect their legal options. We would urge the family of Ms. Hayes to seek the counsel of an experienced Texas bus accident attorney, who is well-versed with any mass transportation accident cases. A skilled personal injury lawyer will be able to look into the various factors that played a role in this horrific crash and immediately notify all parties who could be responsible for this devastating bus accident that injured Ms. Hayes.
