Bruceville-Eddy to Replace Bus Lost in Crash

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- The Bruceville-Eddy bus crash that happened last month resulted in the need for a new bus.

The school district told the Waco Tribune they are looking into their options to replace the bus that was totaled in the crash with a dump truck back on Sept. 16.

The district's insurance policy would only cover one-fifth of the cost of a new bus.

The cost for a new bus: about $90,000.

The dump truck driver had no insurance.

There is no final decision yet, but officials say they are seriously weighing their options, because one bus makes a big difference to a smaller school district like the BEISD.

Police say the dump truck driver likely fell asleep at the wheel, causing the crash.
