Twelve children were injured Monday morning when two school buses collided in southwest Fort Worth.
Investigators said the buses collided when the first bus attempted to turn right from westbound Crowley-Cleburne Road onto Melton when it was rear-ended by the second bus. The first bus was then pushed off of the road and into a decorative fence along the west curb line of Melton Road.
By 2:30 p.m., investigators said 10 of the 12 children had been treated and released. The two children that remain hospitalized are there for observation and their injuries are minor.
The 55-year-old driver of the second bus was issued a traffic citation for Failure to Control Speed to Avoid a Collision.
The children are 5th and 6th graders who attend Mary Harris Intermediate School in the Crowley Independent School District.
