State troopers in the Golden Triangle were busy Monday morning dealing with a fatal accident involving a school bus. It happened shortly after 7:00 on U.S. Highway 90 about 8 miles west of Beaumont.
Sergeant Stephanie Davis says 56-year-old David Eugene Strickler, of Biloxi, Mississippi, was killed when his Dodge minivan rear-ended an eastbound Hardin-Jefferson ISD school bus. Davis said it occurred as the bus was slowing to make a turn.
Davis said there were eleven students on the bus, none of which were injured, but the bus driver did complain of injuries and was transported to a hospital.
