Worth County - Four special education students are sent to the hospital after a tractor trailer sideswipes their bus in Worth County.

Just before seven Thursday morning, the big rig and the bus scrapped each other while heading in opposite directions on Highway 256. Troopers say the tractor trailer crossed the center line and hit the bus, sending it off the road.

The driver of the truck, 37 year old Paul Nathan Childs of TY TY was not hurt, and stopped his Relwof Farms truck in a field about a half mile away from the crash site. Four students, a bus monitor, 31-year old Angela Roberson, and driver, 65 year old Gail Ledford were all taken to the hospital as a precaution, but are all okay.    

Morgan Butler says, "There was a huge bang and I heard it way down there a half a mile away."

Trooper Darryl Benton says, "This early in the morning, with the school bus picking up kids., that's why we caution everyone to be cautious about the school buses. To keep them in their mind and watch out for them. They do have our kids on there and they are our precious cargo."

Childs, the driver of the truck, has been charged with failure to maintain lane.
