An early morning accident involving a school bus and another vehicle between Weatherford and Mineral Wells in under investigation by Durham School Services.
Durham General Manager Gerald Exman said there were no injuries to anyone on the bus.
“That’s all I know right now,” Exman said.
He said no further information would be available until Durham has a chance to complete its investigation and gathering information from the Texas Department of Transportation trooper on scene.
DPS Trooper Gary Rozell said the bus, driven by David Michael Logdson was heading westbound on Highway 180 at about 6:50 a.m. when he used a crossover at Old Millsap Hwy. to turn and head back along the east-bound side of Hwy. 180.
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.
