  1. This hits too close to home! AGAIN WITH CAR RUNNING INTO SCHOOL BUS TURNING LEFT. My youngest dtr and son in law lost their niece and nephew exactly like this a few years ago! SIERRA AND CALEB HARDIN!!!!!

  2. I sat in the traffic and saw the aftermath of this. The car was beyond destroyed. I knew there was no way they survived. Condolences to the family.

  3. Waiting for this to happen on 2900.There is never and law presence and the cars drive to fast and ignore the buses like they are not there.I have made multiple complaints to Llano county since my kids catch the bus on 2900 yet never a police car there to slow anyone down.Condolences to the family for their loss.Thankfully the children and bus driver are okay.Condolences to Linda also.I remember the accident with Caleb and Sierra.

    1. Knew Kevin, worked with him at costco, he was a great guy sad to see this. Kaleb and Sierra were my cousins I remember getting a call from my mom that afternoon telling me the horrible news. Seems this is where a turning lane would be great it always scares me on highways like 29 and 183 north when you have to make a left hand turn , you just never know what’s going to happen behind you!
