Bandera County Sheriff’s Office dispatched Saturday morning, asking Pastor Greg if they were burning something on their property. When he informed them he wasn’t, they determined that his bus was up in flames.

The accident was caused when another vehicle hit his vehicle and rolled Pastor Greg and his daughter. He suffering life-altering injuries when he shielded his daughter from the impact of the crash.
