AUSTIN (KXAN) — A Lake Travis Independent School District school bus with no school children on board was involved in a crash Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened around 4:15 p.m. at Bee Creek Road near Barnett Glen Road. A spokesperson for the district said a driver lost control and hit the bus. A photo from a KXAN viewer shows the front driver side of the bus with extensive damage.

The bus driver had already finished their route from Lake Travis Middle School and was headed back to the bus barn when the crash happened. No major injuries were reported in the crash.

The district will use a replacement bus until the damaged bus could be repaired.

Earlier in the day, an Austin ISD school bus was t-boned by a driver who police say ran a red light.
