WEST (May 4, 2014) U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, R-Bryan, wants Texas to re-examine the number of people who were injured in the April 17 fertilizer plant explosion in West that left 12 first responders and three residents dead.
Flores sent a letter Thursday to the Texas Department of State Health Services asking for a "more comprehensive investigation" of the explosion last year in West.
The Dallas Morning News reported that official state tallies of those injured in the blast omit people who sought care from private medical providers and do not track mental health issues.
West is counting on the state for a more detailed investigation, Flores said.
A spokesman for the health department says officials will work with Flores.
