McKINNEY, Texas - The driver of an SUV died after she rear-ended a Denton ISD school bus late Thursday night.
The accident happened on busy Highway 380 west of Highway 75 in McKinney. Even though it was close to 11 p.m., there were students from the Braswell High School’s tennis team on board the bus at the time.
McKinney police said they had gotten calls about an erratic driver in a grey Jeep. Minutes later the woman behind the wheel hit the back of the bus.
The woman died at the scene. No one on the bus was seriously injured. Only one student was taken to the hospital as a precaution, police said.
Denton ISD said the bus was still drivable so it continued on to the school after being cleared by police and parents. Parents picked their kids up from the school.
The roadway was closed for several hours after the crash but has since reopened.
