No one hurt in semi crash with loaded school bus


No injuries were reported in a crash between a semi truck, a pickup, and a school bus in Texas early on Wednesday morning. 

The accident happened at around 7:30 a.m. on Highway 190 in east Brazos County, Texas. 

According to KRHD News, a Bryan ISD school bus was stopped on the shoulder of Highway 190 facing westbound with flashers on as it picked up students from a bus stop. A Ford pickup then came to a stop to allow the bus some room to pick up the students, but a semi truck traveling behind it was unable to slow in time and crashed into the back of the pickup. The force of the impact then forced the pickup into the school bus. 

Thankfully, no one, including the five students on board the school bus, was hurt in the incident. This includes the 27-year-old bus driver, Katheryn Baker; the 51-year-old pickup driver, Robert Farris; and 40-year-old trucker, Gene Fort. 

The investigation into the incident is still ongoing and it is not clear what citations, if any, have been issued as a result of the wreck.
