One person was in critical condition and a student suffered minor injuries after a school bus crash involving a wrong-way driver Friday morning on a Texas 121 exit to Belknap Street, authorities said.
A 40-year-old woman apparently was driving the wrong way when she tried to exit eastbound Texas 121 and collided with the bus almost head-on, Fort Worth police spokesman Daniel Segura said.
The bus carried 11 youngsters and the driver, headed to a summer enrichment program at Fort Worth Country Day, a private school at 4200 Country Day Lane, district spokesman Clint Bond said.
Segura said one child had minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital. The rest of the students went on to the enrichment program on another school bus, Bond said.

MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said two ambulances were at the scene shortly before 7:30 a.m. and that one patient in critical condition was extracted from a vehicle.
Segura said it was not known why the woman was driving the wrong way.
