HUTTO – There are signs that life is starting to return to normal at the site where a school bus crashed through a fence and hit a residence Tuesday, Sept. 5. Debris has been removed and plastic sheeting hung.

According to officials, the accident happened around 6:15 p.m., as the Hutto Independent School District bus was returning students home. There were four students on the bus. The students were uninjured.

It is unknown why the driver lost control of the vehicle, but while driving on Star Ranch Boulevard near Winterfield Drive, the bus jumped over the median, veered across the opposite lane, over the curb, went through a fence and became buried in the back of a house.

One resident was home but it was reported that they were uninjured.

Upon learning of the crash, the school district moved to confirm no students were injured and talked to parents. The driver was taken to a medical facility. The district could not comment on his injuries or

condition. “District and campus leaders spent the morning (after the accident) checking on our students and parents involved, as well as our drivers, encouraging them and providing resources,” said Noelle Newton, executive director of communications for the district.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is continuing to investigate the incident and has not released any additional information.
