One student has been killed, and three more injured, after a school bus overturned in Houston early Thursday morning.
The Houston Fire Department responded to a call at 7am local time, where apparently the bus driver was also injured.
According to reports, a female student died after the bus was involved in a four-vehicle collision, which caused the bus to crash through the freeway barrier and land on its side on the road below. The three students and teacher are currently being treated for ‘serious injuries’ .
“We are deeply saddened by this tragedy and the loss of one of our students,” Houston Independent School District Superintendent Terry Grier said. “I ask all of the HISD community to join me in praying for all of those involved.”
This is a developing story.
