Five people, including four students, were taken to a local hospital after two school buses crashed into each other Monday afternoon, according to the Texas City Independent School District.

The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of Bay Street and 25th Avenue N. The buses were carrying students from Levi Fry Intermediate School.

One school bus hit the other at a stop sign, according to the school district. Originally, seven people were reported injured. The school district later said that four students and one adult were taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

All five people have been released or were in the process of being released Monday evening, the school district said.
