According to Ellis County officials, heavy rains caused the Ennis Independent School District bus to go off the road just east of Interstate-45, on Zmolek Road. The bus was headed to a school when it ended up in the ditch early Tuesday morning.

A total of seven children, the school bus driver and a bus monitor were on board. Two of the kids were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The five children who weren’t injured were picked up by their parents.
