There was a traffic accident in Lufkin involving a bus transporting about 20 jail inmates.

The bus hit an SUV that had slowed down under a bridge covered with a lot of water on Highway 59.

According to officials, the accident was minor, but almost all of the inmates said they suffered injuries. An in-housing nursing staff from the Diboll prison was called out to check the inmates and said nobody was injured.

The inmates were headed to Huntsville from Palestine.
