GILMER, Texas — A school bus here was involved in a two-vehicle accident on Monday morning that resulted in the bus damaging a house.

Police said the bus driver disobeyed a stop sign, collided with a pickup truck and slammed into the house, KLTV reports.

Paramedics told Gilmer Independent School District there were no serious injuries and all the students are safe, according to a district news release. Paramedics examined eight students at the scene. No one was transported by ambulance, although two children left the scene with their parent. All other students were transported to school, where they saw the nurse, counselor and principal. The district contacted parents as soon as possible.

Twenty students were on board the bus and two women were inside the home at the time of the collision, according to KLTV. The driver of the pickup truck was taken to the hospital and, although the women were unharmed, one was seated a few feet from where the bus struck the house, and some of their belongings were damaged. The bus driver will not be driving until the investigation is completed, the news source reports.
