School Bus Accident Near Gladewater

Some tense moments for some east Texas school children as their school bus is hit by a car Wednesday morning. The accident happened at Highway 271 north and County Road 374. That's just south of Gladewater, near the Smith, Gregg county line. None of the 33 kids on the bus were injured. Officials say the bus driver failed to yield the right-of-way, and pulled out into oncoming traffic. The accident has sparked angry calls from parents. But the schools transportation director tells us that the driver has not had any problems in the past. 
 
Nevertheless, he will be taken off the driving schedule for a few days. The students were later taken to school on another bus. Troopers say the bus driver will likely be ticketed for the accident.
