The prison bus was traveling to Beeville from the Nueces County Jail when it smashed into three other passenger vehicles, officials said. Authorities said there was road construction in the area where the Texas bus collision occurred, which slowed traffic.
Two occupants from the passenger vehicles were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police reported.
The prisoners aboard the bus were all evaluated by emergency crew members. Two of the inmates were transferred to a local hospital for treatment of injuries resulting from the Texas bus accident. Three prison guards were also transported to the hospital, where they, too, received treatment.
