The Beaumont Fire Department responded to a report of a bus hitting the Beaumont Independent School District's Transportation Office that took place just before 9:30 a.m. Monday, March 7. When units arrived they found one of the district's buses had crashed into the rear of the portable building.
According to a release from the school district, "the driver made a u-turn and apparently, passed out. The driver's bus went over the curb, through the fence and into the transportation office building where several other bus drivers were going about their daily work routine inside the office."
BISD spokesperson Jessie Haynes said several bus drivers were transported to local emergency rooms, including the driver who she said may have had medical issues at the time of the accident.
