It has recently been found that a charter bus company involved in an accident on last Friday, had been dealing with several technical problems over the past two years. The bus accident that sent at least 18 people to the hospital happened on Interstate 35 near San Marcos, TX. The recent accident was caused by the bus driver who allegedly was driving the bus off of the road, turned the bus at the last minute, causing the bus to overturn.
