WACO, Texas (KWTX) Waco police responded late Wednesday morning to help keep an eye on some Texas prison inmates after a blowout stranded the bus in which they were being transported on the shoulder of Loop 340 just west of the Bagby Avenue overpass.

The bus was headed east toward Interstate 35 when the driver pulled to the side of the highway.

The prisoners aboard the first bus were transferred to a second bus as officers secured the area with guns drawn.
