    Police are investigating why a Fort Worth Independent School District bus crashed into a Fort Worth home Thursday evening.

    It happened in the 5000 block of Alta Mesa Boulevard near Whitman Avenue just before 7 p.m.

    Police said the car didn't see the bus and pulled in front of it. The bus then clipped the car and smashed into the backyard of a home.

    "She called and said, 'There's a bus in your backyard.' And I thought, there's something wrong with that statement. But there’s a bus in my backyard," said Campbell. "I came in, and here it is. It went through the fence. There's a brick wall. ... It knocked out the brick wall."

    Fort Worth ISD said the bus was coming from Wedgwood Middle School.

    Police said the school bus driver was taken to the hospital. None of the nine children on board were injured, and the driver of the car was also OK.

    "I'm just glad nobody got hurt," said Campbell. "Life's too short to be upset about little things like that."
