There were 23 middle school students on the bus.

The bus driver, along with three students and the driver of the truck, were all sent to an area hospital. The three students only suffered minor injuries.

Anne Marie Espinoza, director of communications for Southwest ISD, said the children were experiencing minor aches and were sent to the hospital for "precautionary measures."

Investigators believe he may have suffered a seizure behind the wheel in time and if he will face any charges.
