School bus crash kills 2 students, seriously injures 3

HOUSTON (AP) -- Authorities say a school bus plunged off a highway overpass in Houston after being hit by a car on Tuesday, killing two teenage students and seriously injuring three other people.
   
The Houston Independent School District says a 17-year-old female student died at the scene, while a 14-year-old girl died at a hospital.
   
The driver and the other passengers on the bus -- two male students -- are hospitalized.
   
Police spokesman Victor Senties said investigators believe that a car struck the front driver's side of the bus after swerving to avoid another vehicle during morning rush-hour traffic.
   
The bus then lurched to the right, struck a guardrail and toppled to the road below.
   
Police say the accident remains under investigation.
