BURNET COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A Burnet CISD school bus was rear-ended by a car Friday afternoon on State Highway 29.

The crash happened near County Road 264, just southeast of the town of Bertram. The victim, identified as 34-year-old Kevin Matthew Selvera, was driving a Toyota Camry when he crashed into the back of the bus heading eastbound, as the bus slowed to turn onto the county road.

The driver and 12 students on board the bus were uninjured. Troopers say they do not know why he crashed into the back of the bus. The impact of the crash was forceful enough to bounce the car off the road.

DPS say the driver of the car was not wearing a seat belt.

Most of the students were coming from Bertram Elementary School. Another bus from the school district came and picked up the students and the driver.
