LEONA, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas collision between a fire truck and a school bus has left a dozen Odessa students and a firefighter slightly hurt.
A spokesman for the Ector Independent School District says the horticulture group reached home Monday using another bus, following a field trip to Huntsville.
The front of the original bus was demolished in Sunday morning's wreck on Interstate 45 at Leona, about 450 miles from Odessa.
Department of Public Safety Sr. Cpl. Jimmy Morgan said Monday that the cause of the wreck remains under investigation. Morgan says the fire truck driver apparently did not see the school bus while attempting to reach a grass fire.
District spokesman Mike Adkins says the 12 students who suffered minor injuries go to Odessa Permian High School and Odessa High School.
