HOUSTON - No injuries were reported Monday when an employee accidentally crashed a vehicle into Langham Creek High School.

The crash was reported about 7 a.m. at the school on FM Road 529.

A spokesman for the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District said the vehicle crashed into the wall of a hallway before school had started.

Video from Sky 2 showed a window near the entrance was missing. Crews appeared to be evaluating the structure.

"Basically, the whole wall just fell in," student Isaiah Jones said. "There was pieces of the wall all over the floor."

District officials said students in several classrooms have been relocated as a precaution.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

"Some (students) are saying that they don't see how is it possible that a car can be in drive and still have enough speed to run through a wall," Jones said.

About the same time as the crash, a bat was found flying in the west hallway, officials said. The bat eventually flew out of an open door.
