Los Fresnos Consolidated Independent School District officials are elated that no one died and there were no major injuries in the bus roll over carrying five of their elementary school students and a bus driver. District officials say the bus driver has been cleared of wrong doing and will not face any disciplinary punishment. The five childen commute from one elementary school to the other everyday due to overcrowding. They say the bus had extensive damage and will not be used until repair or will not be used again at all. The driver that struck the bus from behind received a citation. Authorities say the driver is not a local resident and was unfamiliar with the road and did not know it was a two-way road.
