SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: A driver that was taken to an area hospital following 8-vehicle crash involving a school bus on Wednesday has died, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said.

The BCSO said the driver killed was the driver of a Bronco and was seen driving recklessly by witnesses moments leading up to the crash. He was in the vehicle that caused the chain reaction, authorities said.

(Original Story)

A case of road rage caused an eight-vehicle crash involving a school bus on Highway 90 near Interstate 35 Wednesday morning, causing the eastbound lanes to close for hours.

The crash happened just after 8 a.m. on the inbound lanes, on the city’s West Side. The lanes reopened just before 2 p.m.

A Pre-K 4 SA bus was traveling to the SA West Center to pick up a class for a planned field trip when the crash occurred. No children were on the bus. A total of eight vehicles were involved, including the school bus.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said witnesses told them that two vehicles appeared to have been engaged in a road rage incident moments before the accident. A sport utility vehicle involved in that road rage struck the school bus, causing a chain reaction, BCSO said.

The sheriff’s office said one driver had serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to an area hospital. Others were treated at the scene.

The crash is the second involving a Pre-K 4 SA bus during the month of April. Pre-K 4 SA released a statement on the crash Wednesday morning:

“Safety of our children and staff remains the utmost priority. We are still working with our transportation provider to gather details at this time,” Pre-K 4 SA said.

According to the San Antonio Fire Department website, as many as 12 units answered the call.
