The crash occurred in the 18200 block of FM 1314 shortly after 3 p.m. The Conroe ISD bus was heading south on FM 1314 when it struck a Glass Steal, Inc. truck, witnesses said.

“I was waiting to make a right turn into the parking lot,” the truck’s driver, John Lindsay, said. “Apparently the bus driver was disciplining some students and didn’t see me stop or slow down. She hit me hard.”

Lindsay’s trailer jackknifed into his business’ fence dozens of feet away and the truck spun around until it stopped facing north. Lindsay was not injured in the crash. click here for complete story
