A 13-year-old girl is injured after jumping from a moving school bus this afternoon.
According to the Galveston County Sheriff's Department, 2 girls were arguing on the Galveston I.S.D. bus. The driver pulled over and separated them, putting one girl in the front area of the bus and the other in the back.
The driver then continued driving on 45 and just south of the Texas City Y the girl in the back opened the emergency exit and jumped from the moving bus, which was traveling at 55 mph.
She was transported to UTMB in unknown condition. Fortunately, she was not struck by another vehicle on the road.
