Killeen school bus

A KISD bus drops students off in the Bridgewood subdivision at the intersection of Auburn Drive and Griffith Loop in Killeen in January 2019.

A Killeen school bus was involved in a crash at the intersection of State Highway 195 and Cactus Spur this morning.

Bus No. 541 was loading students at the intersection when the accident happened just before 8 a.m., according to the Killeen Independent School District. No one was injured on the bus.

According to the Killeen Police Department, the school bus was stopped facing northbound on the highway with its red flashing lights activated, and a black Dodge pickup stopped prior to passing the school bus. The wreck occurred when a black Acura sedan traveling northbound failed to control its speed, and crashed into the rear of the pickup, which caused the pickup to hit the back right of the school bus and land on its roof behind the school bus, according to KPD.

Minor injuries were reported from the drivers of the pickup and sedan, police said.

They were not taken to a hospital. The school bus driver and students on the bus did not report any injuries. | 254-501-7468
