The fatal accident happened on Monday, September 28, 2009 around 1:30 p.m., at the Lamar Consolidated ISD bus barn along Avenue I, as reported by the Houston Chronicle.
According to police officials, a FedEx truck had just finished making a delivery at the bus barn when a Lamar Consolidated ISD employee, identified as Robert Judd Whitman, 61, of Fulshear, happened to be standing in the “blind spot” of the FedEx truck.
