HOUSTON (AP) - Twin students are recovering at a Houston hospital following a school bus wreck that killed the other two passengers and injured the driver.

A spokeswoman at Texas Children’s Hospital on Thursday declined to release conditions of the 17-year-old boy and girl, as requested by the family.

Their mother, Ella Williams, said Wednesday that God had his hands on her children, Brandon and Lakeisha (luh-KEE’-shuh) Williams, during Tuesday’s crash.

Williams says Brandon is speaking and making jokes. Her daughter has communicated by squeezing hands and moving her head. Both students suffered broken bones.

The Houston Independent School District bus went off a highway overpass Tuesday morning after being struck by a car during rush-hour traffic. Two female students died. The bus driver was treated and released from a hospital.
