Channelview ISD released a statement to KTRK, confirming that the bus was carrying students from Channelview High School, which is near Houston.

WEAR reported that the bus was carrying 52 students, and that 43 had been accounted for shortly after the crash.

According to WKRG-TV, a deputy suffered minor injuries while pulling people from the bus.

According to a Texas Peace Officer's Crash Report, the previous crash involving a fatality took place in May 2017 in Houston, when one of the company's buses failed to yield the right of way as it turned left and fatally struck a pedestrian who was in a crosswalk.

A helicopter has now rushed to the Interstate 10 east of Wilcox Road in the westbound lane to treat any people injured, Fox 23 reported.

Baldwin County Sheriff Hoss Mack says one person is dead, one in critical condition and 5 people are in serious condition.

Malone did not identify the bus driver, saying only that he was male.

Around 60 first responders were on the scene of the crash, Loxley Fire Department Chief Lovell said.

A passenger bus crashed Tuesday morning on eastbound Interstate 10 at mile marker 57 near the Alabama/Florida line.

A second bus carrying students from the Disney trip is continuing on to Houston. The interstate is expected to be closed until noon CT.

The passengers are reportedly mostly band members from Channel View High School in Texas.

"First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers go out to our students, employees and families that have been affected by this tragedy", the school district said.

First Class Tours owns the bus that was involved in the accident. He also said officials from the National Transportation Safety Board were on their way to the crash scene. Kramer said immediate details were limited and school authorities are in contact with law enforcement in Alabama to get more information.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott offered his condolences over the crash.

We pledge our assistance in cooperating with local authorities in the investigation.
