East Texas school bus driver hurt in wreck, bus ends up on its side, no students on board
MARSHALL, Texas (AP) — An East Texas school bus driver has been hurt in a wreck that left the vehicle on its side.
Officials with the Marshall Independent School District say no students were on board when the bus was hit by a pickup truck Monday afternoon. Authorities say the bus was headed for an elementary school to pick up children after classes ended for the day.
A district spokesman says the female driver, whose name hasn't been released, managed to make a call for help while still trapped in the bus.
She was treated at the scene and then transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Officials say the truck driver also required medical attention. Further details weren't immediately available.
Marshall is 145 miles southeast of Dallas.
