HOOKS, Texas (KSLA) - One person is dead after a wreck in Hooks, Texas, involving three vehicles.

The crash, which involved a school bus, motorcycle and pickup truck, happened sometime before noon Tuesday, Feb. 21 in front of Hooks Junior High School. The school is located on FM 560.

Students were on the bus, but no one was injured. The driver of the truck also had no injuries.
