At the Horizons School in Alabama, special needs students from ages 18 to 26 are taught how to live their lives more independently. Currently, there are more than 40 such persons attending the educational institution, which is located in the south side of Birmingham. Sadly, one female student, whose age has not been revealed, has become the victim of a fatal accident. The fatal accident happened during the middle of the day and involved a public transit vehicle.
A female student had just left the Horizons School and was crossing the street when she was struck by a bus. Police have stated that she was within a crosswalk when the bus turned the corner and hit her. According to reports, she was dragged for about half a block by the vehicle. When the bus stopped, passersby with medical experience tried to help her and provide emergency treatment.
