Five students were sent to the hospital after a collision involving a school bus in Anna on Monday.
Anna Police Lieutenant Jeff Caponera said the bus was on West Crossing Boulevard when a male from McKinney, driving a white passenger car, failed to stop at a stop sign on Durham Drive.
“The passenger car ran the stop sign and ended up T-boning the bus,” he said.
The accident happened around 7:40 a.m. while the bus was in route to the Anna High School.
Anna ISD said in a press release that bus #15 had 48 students from the middle school and high school on board at the time of the accident and five students were transported to the Medical City of McKinney upon parent request.
“The Anna ISD bus driver involved in the accident did a good job of ensuring student safety and keeping calm at the scene of the accident while first responders processed the scene,” Anna ISD Executive Director Bradley Duncan said in a press release.
Caponera said the injuries at the accident were minor.
One of the students on board at the time of the accident was eighth grader Clayton Box. He was sitting near the center of the bus across from where the car struck the side of the bus.
“It sounded like a windshield shattered and everybody on the bus screamed,” he said.
Box said the accident caused him to hit his head on the side of the bus. After the accident Box said the students arrived at school about an hour late.
