Bowie, TX - A bus of cheerleaders from Amarillo High School was involved in an accident near Bowie, Texas around 11:30 Thursday morning.

There were 21 people on the bus including the students, a coach and the bus driver.

The bus was on its way to Garland, Texas for a state volleyball tournament.

According to AISD spokesperson Holly Shelton, the bus was side-swiped by a car and the driver of the bus was not at fault.
