At that time, a 2008 red Pontiac four-door driven by Blanca Martinez of Mineral Wells was driving eastbound on Hwy. 180.
“The bus crossed over and pulled out in front of the Pontiac and the Pontiac hit it broadside,” Rozell said.The bus was presumed to be taking students to classes in Weatherford.
Rozell said Martinez was transported by Lifecare to Weatherford Regional Medical Center and her vehicle towed from the scene.
Trooper Jeffrey Davis and Rozell both worked the scene.
