Rockwall – Several injuries were reported after a bus carrying six members of the Rockwall Heath High School swim team crashed into a pond yesterday.

20 people were on board at the time. All students and their coach had to climb out the sinking bus through an emergency exit.

The bus driver was reportedly non-responsive when emergency crews arrived at the scene and had to be pulled off the bus. He was in serious condition at last report. The swim team members have been released from hospital.

The bus was carrying the swim team from the aquatics center to the high school.
The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation.
