Two passengers on a DART bus suffered minor injuries when a school bus collided with an SUV, which then hit the DART bus. According to an article in the Dallas Morning News, the crash happened near the intersection between Marsalis Avenue and 8th Street. The two passengers were taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.
Investigators currently believe that the school bus started the crash by colliding with the SUV, which then hit the DART bus. Six students from Herbert Marcus Elementary School were on the school bus when it crashed. According to the school, none of them were injured.
