A small SUV veered into oncoming traffic and struck a Conroe ISD school bus head-on just before 4 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of FM 1314 and SH 242.
According to initial on-scene reports, an Acadian (privately owned) Ambulance was southbound on FM 1314 with a patient inside and the patient’s family member was following in a small Chevy SUV. For, as of yet, unknown reasons, the SUV entered the northbound lanes, striking a CISD bus that was transporting four special needs students.
The SUV sustained major damage, trapping the female driver inside for about 30 minutes before members of the Caney Creek Fire Department freed her from the wreckage. MCHD medics transported her to an area hospital in stable condition. The four students and the bus driver were not injured.
DPS is investigating the crash and the intersection should be cleared soon.
Additional information and on-scene video will be posted later, along with more updates.
