BASTROP, Texas (AP) — Investigators say 10 students and their school bus driver were injured when the vehicle was broadsided by an 18-wheeler on a Central Texas highway.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said nobody was seriously hurt in Wednesday morning’s accident involving a Bastrop Independent School District bus. The wreck on Highway 71 happened during wet, rainy conditions.

The district reports the bus carried 19 children. Eight were transported by ambulance to a hospital. Two others were taken by their parents. Officials didn’t immediately release details on the bus driver.

DPS Sgt. Robbie Berrera said the trucker wasn’t hurt in the accident as the bus was making a turn. The trucker said his brakes failed before the rig hit the bus, Barrera said. 

Bastrop is 30 miles east of Austin.
