JOHNSON COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – There were some scary moments this morning for students and parents in the Venus Independent School District.

Around 7:00 a.m. reports started coming in about a school bus crash.

When police arrived at the scene they found that a school bus with more than 50 children on board had crashed into a tree.

The crash happened on County Road 507 in Johnson County when for some unknown reason the school bus driver veered off the road and stuck the tree.

A CBS 11 News crew arrived at the scene and learned that 55 kids and driver were on the Venus ISD bus. Approximately 12 schoolchildren were taken to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.

Superintendent Bobby Matthews later confirmed that Venus ISD Bus #11 was the one involved in the crash.

According to Matthews, the school bus had special equipment. “We have a camera on the bus so it should tell us a lot more in the next 24 hours.”

Venus is about 15 miles southeast of Fort Worth.
