Two Aledo ISD busses were involved in separate accidents while carrying children home from school today.

A school bus was rear ended on Front Street in Aledo and another, more serious accident involved a school bus being struck by a motorcycle driver who attempted to bypass traffic on FM5.

No children are reported to be injured, but the driver of the motorcycle slid under one of the busses and had two of his limbs almost completely severed in the crash.

He was taken to the hospital and parents were contacted to pick up their children from the scene of the accident.

More details will be posted as they become available.
