HUNT COUNTY, Texas -- A Bland Independent School District bus was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler on Thursday afternoon.

The accident happened just before 1 p.m. on a stretch of U.S. 380 between Floyd and Farmersville, near the border of Hunt and Collin counties.

State troopers said the bus had stopped at an apartment complex along the divided highway when the driver of the truck crashed into the back of it.
