As Federal police in Nuevo Leon, Mexico continue to investigate a Houston bus that crashed, many families back in Texas want to know how their loved ones are doing.

The first Pegasso bus to leave since the one that crashed pulled out of the station on Harrisburg around 8 p.m. Tuesday.

On that bus was a woman whose parents were injured in the awful crash that killed one person and hurt 15 others on a rural highway in Mexico.

"I just want to see my mom. I just want to see my mom and my dad," said Gloria Rodriguez.

Rodriguez's parents, Luis and Gloria, left the same time last night. The younger Gloria said at 9:30 a.m., she learned her parents had been injured.

Gloria Rodriguez says she is hoping to get to her parents soon after they were injured in a deadly bus crash in Mexico.



Gloria says her mother underwent surgery, but hasn't heard any updates on her father. Needless to say, she's concerned.

"It's been really really hard," Gloria said. "I was crying all day. If I had wings, I wish I could fly over there to get there fast."

"We are here and they are over there, that's the problem," said Jaime Rodriguez, the couple's son. "If we are all over there, that would be a different story."

The bus operated by the Pegasso line was headed to the city of Monterrey when it crashed.

We did speak to the owner of the bus company at his home earlier. Juan Caballero declined to go on camera.

He said news out of Monterrey had been slow. He said he has relatives there who are working with Mexican authorities.

The driver said he never had any problems in his 25 years in the bus business, and said this is the most serious incident he has experienced.



A Houston man told Eyewitness News that his teenage sons were on the bus. Fortunately, both only suffered minor bruises.
