DART Bus Hits Tree Avoiding Unrelated Fatal Crash

The driver of a DART bus hit a tree Friday trying to avoid an unrelated fatal crash, officials say.

The bus was near Peavy Road and Crowberry Drive when the driver made an evasive maneuver to avoid another crash and ended up hitting a tree, DART said.

The driver of the bus was the only person on board at the time and was not injured.

From Chopper 5, a silver four-door sedan could be seen stopped on a sidewalk, having crashed into a street sign at the corner of Peavy Lane and Province. No other damaged vehicles were seen at the scene.

The condition of the occupant(s) of that vehicle and the cause of the initial crash are not known, however the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed they have been called to the scene.

Dallas police and Dallas Fire-Rescue are at the scene and Peavy Lane is currently closed to traffic.

NBC 5 has crews on the way and we'll update this story with more information as soon as it's available. As this story is developing, elements may change.
