Truck Driver Dies In Crash Involving Texas School Bus

LUFKIN (December 3, 2013) A truck driver has been killed in a three-vehicle wreck involving a Lufkin ISD school bus, authorities said.

Lufkin Independent School District officials say the bus driver and her own three children were in the bus when the accident happened Monday afternoon on U.S. 59.

District spokeswoman Sheila Adams said they were taken to a hospital to be checked out, as a precaution.

The name of the 18-wheeler driver who died wasn't immediately released.

Another truck was also involved in the accident.

It’s not clear whether the driver in the second truck required medical attention.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says hazardous materials crews cleaned up a flammable liquid that spilled from one of the rigs.
