School Bus Carrying About 42 Children Overturns - New York Times
This happened to me in fifth grade on an unpaved road in Houston. When the bus first went off the road, I thought, Cool, we're gonna be stuck in a ditch and late for school - something that happened from time to time. But then we kept going. And, hey, isn't that a tree I see through the windshield (I was sitting near the front)?

Suddenly the tree, the grass, the sky, and whatever else I could see turned at a sharp 90 degree angle. The seat in front of my brother (then in the 1st grade) and me collapsed for some reason - he needed a few stitches above his eye. Another boy his age, but very small, needed 13 stitches in his head, as I recall. He was okay, but the girl he bled all over was pretty freaked out.

I got my brother and the other kid into the cab of a pickup truck that stopped to help, and I jumped in the bed. We sped to the school, where they called an ambulance (no cellies back then).

One more thing I remember: in the school office later that day, all the kids on the bus called their parents. A kindergardener named Keith said, "Hi, Mom, the bus crashed and a couple of kids are bloody, but I'm OK, bye!" and hung up the phone. I could only imagine the look on his mother's face.
Comments:
That's a great story you close with. Kids have such a poor idea of how to communicate appropriately by telephone — and that was an occasion when a deft touch really counted!
Q
 
You certainly weren't riding through Bellaire. Too many speed traps there, or so I recall. Haven't been back in about 12 years.
 
You know about speeding in Bellaire and live in my current neighborhood? That does it. You're coming over for a Shabbat and/or yontif meal.
