Texas motorcycle accident attorneys alerts- A school bus crash left an Arlington motorcycle cop dead.

Fort Worth, TX—A fiery school bus crash killed an Arlington motorcycle police officer on Wednesday, January 13, 2010. Police officials are still trying to piece together how the 7:15 a.m. collision at the intersection of South Cooper Street and West Inwood Driver occurred, as reported by WFAA-TV.

Arlington Police investigators are currently trying to determine how the horrific and fatal crash occurred that left seven-year veteran of the force Craig Story, 34, dead. The school bus was reportedly carrying nine students, ages, 6 to 12, from Crow, Ditto and Dunn elementary school, and Bailey and Young high schools when the collision occurred. All nine students and the bus driver managed to escape without injury. After the collision occurred the motorcycle erupted into flames, which engulfed the officer. Witnesses rushed over and tried to extinguish the man with their jackets; the officer was reported to have sustained extensive burns. Witness also stated it appeared the officer was in pursuit of someone when he allegedly slammed into the side of the bus. The students on the bus were immediately taken to the high school so they could receive grief counseling. The school bus apparently was not seriously damaged in the crash, and actually managed to drive for a couple feet after the crash before it pulled over. An investigation is ongoing.
