Abilene Christian Bus Crash - A Texas state trooper says it will take time to determine why an Abilene Christian University bus left a highway and crashed Friday, killing one student and critically injuring four others.

Investigators are interviewing those who were on the bus and “a lot of possibilities are being considered” in regard to Friday’s crash, Department of Public Safety Trooper Phillip “Sparky” Dean said.

Twelve Department of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences students, three faculty members and a faculty member’s wife were en route aboard the university-owned bus from Abilene to Medina, where they were going to spend the weekend doing mission work.

The bus was southbound on Highway 83 when the driver lost control as he approached a slight curve at around 3:20 p.m. Friday at the intersection of County Road 234 in Runnels County, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

The two-year-old, 24-passenger bus struck a concrete culvert and overturned, ejecting several passengers.
