North Texas School Bus Accident Sends Students To Hospital

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Six children are being treated for injuries after their school bus collided with another vehicle on a busy North Texas highway.

Fort Worth Independent School District spokesman Clint Bond says the accident occurred about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday as students from Elliott Elementary School headed out on a field trip. He says there were 35 children and three adults, including the drive, aboard the bus.

He says the injuries were minor and that five children were taken by ambulance to a hospital. A sixth student was taken by a parent for medical treatment. A parent serving as a chaperone also was transported.

Those who were not hurt were transferred to another bus to continue the field trip.

The accident happened on Interstate-30 at the Highway 287 interchange, near downtown Fort Worth, and snarled traffic through the area for hours.
