Several students were injured when the driver of a Waxahachie ISD bus lost control. According to Texas State Troopers, the driver was distracted by an incident on the bus. He swerved off the road and overcorrected. The bus flipped on its side sending the children flying inside the bus. One child had to kick open the hatch, so the children could get out.
12 children were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, one suffered a broken arm. None of the children were wearing seatbelts because the bus was not equipped with them. The driver, who was the only one wearing a seatbelt, did not suffer any injuries.
