Family speaks out after their boys injured in bus stop crash

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- More details are being released on the bus stop crash that left three young brothers severely hurt.

Those boys have now all been released from the hospital.

The bus bench and shelter that once stood at Bonanza and Lamb was obliterated by the two-car crash a few weeks ago.

At the time, it wasn't known if the boys would make it, but now all three brothers are out of the hospital and sharing their story of survival.

It was around 5:30 a.m. on Sept. 20, when Rodney James picked up the boys from daycare and waited at the bus stop to take them home, when two pickup trucks collided, sending one flying into the bus stop, seriously harming the boys.

5-year-old Damari suffered a head injury, punctured liver and broken leg. 4-year-old Davon, who was released from the hospital on Friday, had both legs broken in the crash, as well as some serious head and neck injuries. 2-year-old Amir had his skull fractured and ruptured spleen.

The family spoke out to Action News on how this has changed their lives.

"Seeing them go through the pain they go through every day, it's crushing by heart to see them not be able to do the things they want to," said one of the parents.

The family's attorney said they've already settled with one of the drivers involved in the crash. They're now considering another lawsuit against the Regional Transportation Commission.

If you're interested in helping the family with medical expenses, you can donate to the James Injured Children Fund at any Wells Fargo location.
