SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) - A sport utility vehicle veered into an opposing lane on a West Texas city street and slammed head-on into a bus, sending nine people to local hospitals.
The crash happened about 1 p.m. Friday on a San Angelo street just outside Goodfellow Air Force Base.
A police statement says the SUV with a 46-year-old woman and her 5-year-old granddaughter were driving past the air base when the woman reached down to grab a toy for her grandchild. The SUV veered across the middle line and slammed into the bus with a driver and six passengers ranging in ages from 39 to 63. All were taken to hospitals for treatment of injuries characterized by police as non-incapacitating.
The woman was cited for driving left of the center line.
