LA VERNIA -- According to Superintendent Tom Harvey of the La Vernia Independent School District, no one was hurt when one of the district’s school buses collided with a mail-delivery vehicle on C.R. 321 just after 4:30 p.m. April 16.
The bus was carrying 21 students who attend the La Vernia Primary and Intermediate schools. Based on reports Harvey has received from the driver and from school officials at the scene, he said a mail carrier attempted to pass the school bus when her vehicle “fishtailed” and struck the bus.
One female student, who complained of pain in her side, was examined at the scene by members of the La Vernia Emergency Medical Services, Harvey said. She was not transported. There were no reports of injuries.
