Prison bus carrying 31 prisoners collides with pickup in central Texas, leaving one dead

A bus carrying 31 prisoners collided with a pickup in central Texas Friday morning, leaving one dead and at least 21 inmates hospitalized. The driver of the truck was killed in the accident approximately 90 miles from Waco, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice said. The bus was taking the Abilene-area prisoners and two Correction officers to a prison in Huntsville, according to the Houston Chronicle. The accident took place in the Comanche County town of Gustine. The driver, identified as 24-year-old Kalyn Rae Brymer of Thorndale, died at the scene. He did not yield at a stop sign, according to authorities.

In all, 21 of the inmates were taken to hospitals and the other 10 were taken to an infirmary at an unspecified prison unit in Gatesville, Texas prison spokesman Robert Hurst said. Five of the most seriously injured inmates were flown from the scene. The guards, one of whom was driving the bus, were also taken to medical facilities, Hurst said, but he had no further details.
