Accident involving School Bus (Waxahachie)

Waxahachie Fire, Police, and Ellis County EMS personnel were dispatched to a major accident involving a school bus this morning around 7:00am. A vehicle had crashed into the back of a Waxahachie ISD school bus in front of Shackelford Elementary School at 1001 Butcher Road.

The driver of the vehicle was seriously injured, but no one on board the bus sustained any serious injuries.

An Air Evac Lifeteam helicopter was called to the scene for the driver of the vehicle. That driver was airlifted into Dallas with unknown severity of injuries.

According to photos provided to DFW Scanner from a follower, it appears the crash occurred at the entrance to the school just east of the intersection of Butcher Road and Carlton Parkway. The helicopter landed on Butcher Road near the crash scene.

We will update this post with any official information from Waxahachie Police or ISD administrations.
