A pickup truck rear-ended a San Marcos CISD school bus and was promptly rear-ended itself by a second pickup truck at roughly 3:30 p.m. today on River road. No one was injured in the collisions, an officer at the scene said.Bus No. 43 was two stops away from completing its afternoon route when it was hit and continued on its way after a short delay, said Georgeanne Lougue, the superintendent’s administrative assistant.
Lougue did not know how many children were on the bus at the time it was hit but said she was told no children were injured. San Marcos transportation director Carter Hutson and other district officials did not take The Mercury’s calls seeking more information this afternoon.
A silver Dodge Ram truck struck the bus from behind and was then struck from behind itself by a white Chevrolet Z71.
San Marcos police Cpl. James Palermo was conducting the collision investigation and said he did not have time to talk. Palermo did confirm that no one was injured and the basic mechanics of the wreck: that the bus was hit from behind by a truck which was then hit by another truck. There was no apparent damage to the bus.
A paramedic was seen examining a young boy who appears to have been a passenger in the first pickup truck. The boy did not seem injured and the paramedic and boy sat on the street curb while officers questioned the drivers involved.Email | Print
