Prisoners Sit on Highway Median After Transport Bus Overturns

All prisoners were accounted for, authorities said, after the transport bus they were traveling on was involved in a rollover crash on Highway 281 near George West, Texas, on October 1.

Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Nathan Brandley told KRIS 6 News that more than 40 prisoners were on a bus traveling to Dominguez State Jail in San Antonio. He said the crash occurred around 7:30 am and that several of those on board were complaining of neck pain afterwards.
