Bus Crash

A Huntsville ISD bus transporting the freshman football team to a game in Montgomery was involved in a rollover wreck Thursday afternoon. 

According to HISD officials, there were two buses transporting the team, but only one was involved in the accident on FM 1791 near FM 149 in Richards. 

Seven students and one adult were transported by EMS to Conroe Regional Hospital for treatment. There were no fatalities and no serious or life-threatening injuries reported.

There were an additional 13 students and two adults on the same bus that were transported by HISD with EMS on board to Conroe Regional Hospital to be examined as a precautionary measure. 

There were 15 students who were passengers on the second bus that were transported back to Huntsville High School by a substitute HISD bus that was dispatched to the scene after the accident was reported. 

HISD sent a general parent notification of the accident to the freshman team parents, only upon learning of the accident. HISD Transportation and Admin staff are in the process of contacting each players' parent now to update them of their individual status and location.

"We are so thankful for the outcome of this accident and that there are no serious injuries," HISD spokesperson Shannon Duncan said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Hornet players, coaches and families involved."
