BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - A Bryan Independent School District bus hit a sinkhole Tuesday afternoon on Crenshaw Street near E. 23rd Street.

At least two dozen students from Fannin Elementary were on the bus that was making a stop outside a student's home on Crenshaw when the pavement collapsed.

Nobody was hurt.

"Everyone on the bus jumped up and started screaming because we thought the bus was going to flip over," said an 11-year-old student Jaylen Mosley.

"The bus driver told us to be quiet and sit down,' said the 4th grader.

School district and city officials say the bus was over "soft pavement" that suddenly collapsed near a manhole in the road. City crews will work quickly to repair it and investigate what caused this to happen, according to City of Bryan spokeswoman Kayla McCain.

"I was just happy it wasn't worse that this. That could have been inside the road if it opened up more," said parent Bridget Swanson.

"I'm very relieved all the kids are okay."

The students were loaded onto a second school bus to continue on finish their afternoon route.

Some parents did show up at the scene to pick up their kids.
