Location: South Cooper Street near Lynda Lane Arlington, Tx

Type: Motorcycle Accident, Bus Accident

 

An Arlington police officer died after colliding with a school bus Wednesday morning near Arlington High School, according to the Arlington Police Department.

 
At about 7:15 a.m., the officer, whose identity has not yet been released, was attempting to pull over a driver along the northbound lanes of South Cooper Street near Lynda Lane. Somehow, the officer crashed into the school bus, and his motorcycle burst into flames.
 
Nine students from five Arlington schools (Crow, Ditto and Dunn elementary schools and Bailey and Young junior high schools) were on the bus at the time of the accident. None of the children were injured and all were taken to Arlington High School where they were expected to speak with Arlington police officers before being released to their parents. Grief counselors are also on hand  to assist the children.
