According to KTRE, the fatal crash occurred around 4 pm Monday.
Preliminary reports indicate the Shelby ISD school bus was turning right from FM 139 onto CR 2552 when it was struck from behind by a 1997 Dodge pickup. The collision caused the school bus to overturn, killing the 11-year-old boy.
Several other students were injured in the accident, and a helicopter was staged near the crash site at the Ephesus Baptist Church. The helicopter left the scene by 6:15 pm.
An eye witness told reporters that the bus was stopped at the intersection with its flashers on before the crash occurred. The accident remains under investigation.
