AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin ISD school bus was sideswiped by an 18-wheeler on Interstate 35, Thursday afternoon.

Police were called to the 5600 block of South I-35 northbound, near East Stassney Lane, in response to the collision at 2:11 p.m. No students were on board the bus and no injuries were reported to police.

The bus’ mirrors were broken, leaving the bus pulled over to the side of the interstate.

In October, two AISD buses were involved in separate crashes just days apart. One of the buses crashed into a stone mailbox in southwest Austin, sending the driver to the hospital.
