The driver of the 18-wheeler involved in the accident was taken to University Hospital in San Antonio in critical condition. The rest of the accident victims were taken to Guadalupe Regional Medical Center for observation.

Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Jason Reyes said, “It appears that we had an 18-wheeler that was southbound on 123 and the PT Cruiser that was in front of it had pulled over on the shoulder to allow the 18-wheeler to pass. It appears that the 18-wheeler had clipped the PT Cruiser, causing it to spin directly in front of the bus, striking the bus. A Ford Focus that was directly behind the bus became involved in the crash.”

Shortly after the crash, a fire erupted destroying all four vehicles, Reyes said.

“We are not certain what started the fire at this moment but once we had the impact between the 18-wheeler and the PT Cruiser it started and spread,” he said.

According to a school official none of the students sustained life threatening injuries.

The accident remains under investigation at this time.
