BISD bus crashes in ditch

    BEAUMONT -- A Beaumont school district bus crashed into a ditch at Prince Street and Grand Street in Beaumont. The front of the bus sustained moderate damage, observers at the scene said. Two students were transported by ambulance to a hospital.

    According to Ron Reynolds, BISD Spokesman, there were 12 student and the drive on the bus at the time of the accident. No other vehicles were involved.

    Reynolds said, the driver of the school bus realized they were not going to make the turn, so instead of braking they accelerated. That caused the front of the bus to go into the ditch. The driver was cited for failure to control speed.

    He said the bus was coming from Pathways Learning Center and on the way to drop off students at home.

    The name of the drive was not released. No other information was released.
