    Unhappy Two of my friends's horses died..hit by a bus

    I wasn't on the bus, just so you know.

    One of my friends said that they were on their way home from a basketball game on the travel bus. Alex (not really her name, btw) said that they just suddenly hit a horse. The bus just tore the horse in half, breaking the windshield and throwing blood all over the people in the front seats. The bus was tipped on it's two right wheels, but somehow the bus driver got the bus back on all four's. One horse was in half, and the other was hit on the side. There were a total of seven horses loose that night, but only two died.

    I am so sorry for the people who had to experience that. I hope I never have to experience something that.
    Be careful driving, really watch out at night.

    What a horrible experience for all. Thank God none of the bus riders or driver were killed. I am sorry for the horses, but my first concern is for the humans.

    Oh, my... that's so terrible. Let this be a reminder: PLEASE watch where your going, and DO NOT text and drive!

    I seriously doubt the bus driver was texting or not paying attention to the road, especially with a group of youngsters for whom he/she was responsible. It was dark, and animals are hard to see at night. They most certainly aren't expected to be standing in the middle of the road. The blame here certainly doesn't lie with the bus driver.

    The horse owners and barn owner will be considered responsible in the eyes of the law, since the animals weren't fenced properly.

    My condolences to those who lost their horses, but I'm glad that no human lives were lost.

    A reminder of what? The bus driver probably wasn't texting. I seriously doubt that any bus driver would risk their job (plus whatever legal repercussions for putting so many young lives in danger).

    There are worse things than texting and driving. Such as I always have to have my mother drive my car when I need to go a fair distance (40+ miles) as I tend to literally pass out while I'm driving even when I'm wide awake. I have no idea why, but that's how it is...

    It's really too bad for those horses, and the people involved of course. That one horse...that must have been a hideous sight. Ugh.

    :( So sad... luckily when the horses got loose in CO no one hit them. So scary what can happen..

    Remember to triple check your fences and gates so horses don't turn up loose as often!

    Oh, my. I'm very glad you did not have to witness that.

    Go ahead and criticize my priorities, but experiencing hitting a horse in that way would be as traumatic to me as hitting a human being.

    I can't imagine being a passenger on that bus, or the owner of those horses.

    I am sorry for all involved.
    When I was a tween, my dad, who travelled for a living, came home and told us that he hit a horse on the Interstate. The (rental) car was totaled, and the horse lived--he had been hit before bc he had gotten in the habit of jumping the fence and grazing in the median.
    Check your fences.
