SAN ANTONIO -- A school bus for the North East Independent School District crashed into a motel pool before picking up kids from school on Thursday afternoon.

The driver lost control of the bus and crashed into the Town House Motel, 942 NE Loop 410, near the San Antonio International Airport around 2:45 p.m.

An NEISD official said the driver was en route to pick up students from school, so no students were aboard the bus at the time of the crash.

According to the hotel manager, the bus driver told him that he was hit by another car before crashing into the swimming pool.
