    The Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the report of a school bus crash at the intersection of TX-214 and CR-1028 in Bailey County around 2:20 p.m. on Tuesday.

    Authorities say nine children were taken to a West Texas hospital after a semi-trailer carrying cattle collided with a school bus.

    Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Bryan Witt said Wednesday that the children aboard the Muleshoe Independent School District bus were taken to a Muleshoe hospital for evaluation. One child later was transported to a Lubbock hospital but Witt says the child was not seriously hurt.

    The driver of the semi-trailer suffered serious injuries that are not considered life-threatening. The driver of the school bus was not hurt.

    Witt says the bus was attempting to make a left turn Tuesday when the semi-trailer, which was following behind, tried to pass on the left.
