Texas schools often used bus firm linked to fatal crash

According to a report by Matt Stiles and Chase Davis of the Houston Chronicle, "Angel Tours, the charter bus company tied to a deadly North Texas crash this month, also shuttled children and students on dozens of trips since 2006, mostly for extracurricular events paid by local schools and universities."  Records show the Houston Independent School District has paid $112,000 to Angel Tours, and the Pasadena Independent School District (PISD) has paid $23,000 for charters since October of 2006.  PISD had recently designated Angel Tours as a recommended vendor for the district.
