Fort Sill Bus in Collision, 10 Hurt

Fort Sill

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Officials say 10 people have been slightly hurt when two charter buses transporting military personnel from Oklahoma were part of a three-vehicle wreck in Texas.

MedStar EMS spokesman Matt Zavadsky says the accident happened Saturday morning on southbound Interstate 35 in Fort Worth.

Zavadsky says the buses were hauling uniformed personnel from Fort Still, Oklahoma, to Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. He says eight bus passengers and two people from another vehicle were transported to hospitals for treatment of minor injuries.

Zavadsky says it appears the lead bus suddenly stopped, possibly bumped a car in front of it, then the second bus rear-ended the first one.

Fort Worth police Corporal Tracey Knight had no immediate information on the cause of the accident or details on the charter operator.
