ROSENBERG, Texas - A charter bus that was bound for Tennessee sustained significant damage Thursday after crashing into a guardrail in Rosenberg.

The crash was reported about 5:30 a.m. on the northbound side of Interstate 59 at the State Highway 36 exit.

 

 

Video from SKY 2 showed the bus belonged to Transportes Del Norte. A group of people, who appeared to be passengers, could be seen standing near the bus.

Rosenberg police said several people were aboard the bus at the time of the crash. None of the passengers suffered serious injuries, but a few were taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.

Passengers told KPRC 2 they were asleep when they felt the bus shaking and people screaming. 

Passengers were loaded into another bus and continued to their destination in Tennessee, where they plan to do contract work.
 

 

 

One of the passengers said he had to help some of the 33 people aboard climb out of a window because the door of the bus was inoperable.

Another passenger said the bus was traveling from Matamoros, Mexico, to Tennessee.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
