A Kilgore school bus was headed east on FM 349 when it landed on its side in a ditch.

Authorities say it was raining when the driver took a corner too sharply, hydroplaned and tipped over.

Officials say another car took evasive action to avoid a worse wreck.

Students were on the bus at the time, but no one was injured.

The driver was cited for unsafe speed.

The bus drivers in Kilgore are unsafe. I refuse to let my child ride the bus. I would not let her ride on field trips if it wasn't required; however, she does not ride it back. I alway go and sign her out before time to go to keep her safe. Two years ago her class went on a field trip and I followed the bus. While in Tyler at the intersection the intersection by the mall the bus she was on ran the red light. I complained, but nothing was done. Something needs to be done before a child dies.

totally agree took my kids and picked them up and now i take my grandchildren and pick them up too....
