According to the Herald Courier, the crash occurred around 3:15 pm on Farm Road 407, about 5 miles west of Justin, Texas.
The school bus was transporting 18 elementary-age children when it drifted off the roadway and overturned. The bus came to rest on its right side.
At least seven students were hospitalized following the wreck. Fortunately, none of their injuries are considered to be life-threatening. The remaining students were taken back to Justin Elementary School.
Many parents arrived to the elementary school after their children did not arrive home. One parent said her two sons normally get home around 3:20 pm, and she decided to call the school when the bus failed to arrive by 3:40 pm.
