Wishing a speedy and healing recovery to Emilio Navaira III and others involved

Yes accidents happen everyday but I always hate hearing about them when people are hurt. Read this on the Click 2 Houston news site. I hope all those who are still in the hospital will have a speedy recovery.

Singer-Songwriter Emilio Injured In Bus Crash

Famous Tejano Singer Hospitalized In Critical Condition

Emilio Navaira III, the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, was critically injured in a major bus crash in Houston Sunday, police said. The band's bus slammed into traffic barrels just after 5 a.m. on Interstate 610 northbound in the Houston suburb of Bellaire, west of downtown Houston, said Bellaire police Sgt. Daniel Kerr. Based on video from traffic cameras at the scene, previous news reports said three vehicles were involved. Kerr said only the bus was involved, however.

Navaira, 45, was one of eight people injured in the crash, said Houston Assistant Fire Chief Omero Longoria. He was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition and receiving treatment in the intensive care unit, said hospital administrator Lisa Lagrone. Two others were transported to Memorial Hermann with less severe injuries, Longoria said. Both were from the bus, treated for minor injuries and released, Lagrone said. The other five were taken to Ben Taub Hospital, where two were listed in critical condition, Longoria said. Navaria's brother, Raul Navaria, was one of those injured in the crash -- he was discharged but remained at the hospital, awaiting the outcome of his brother's hospitalization. Emergency crews were still trying to remove the bus from the scene at midday and traffic was moving slowly, Kerr said. Navaria, known as Emilio to his fans, and his band Rio played at the Hullabaloo club Saturday.
