SHERMAN, Tex. -- An accident involving an S & S school bus happened just after 6:30 Wednesday morning on West Highway 82 near Jeff's Automotive at FM 1417.

Witnesses say a pick-up truck hit the school bus in the rear as the bus was pulling away from a stop.

According to one parent, the truck was trying to pass the bus when the accident happened as traffic on both sides of the highway was stopped. The driver of the Ford F-250 swerved to avoid the stopped traffic and rear-ended the school bus.

Children on the bus were checked out by EMS. No serious injures have been reported.

Parents are calling for a change along this stretch of road where they say people are in a hurry in the morning and evening and an accident like this was just waiting to happen.

No word on if or what charges the driver will face.
