MIDLAND -It's the second Midland I.S.D. School bus accident in the past week.

13 Midland Lee Freshman and Junior High students were on their way to school Tuesday morning when their bus rear-ended the car in front of them.

No one was injured, but the accident is under investigation.

It happened at the Garfield and Loop 250 intersection just a few minutes before 8 Tuesday morning.

The school district says they're reminding bus drivers to be careful on the busy roads.

"We have to remain watchful and make sure our drivers are doing what they need to do to account for that and be aware of other drivers, because, not only do they have to drive for themselves, but they have to drive for everyone else," MISD Communications Director Woodrow Bailey, said.

So far this year, there have been three bus accidents, the same amount as last year.

The accident last week resulted in the driver's DWI arrest.

M.I.S.D. tells us Tuesday morning's crash was a minor accident.
