HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A crash involving a school bus on the I-10 East Freeway inbound at Mercury caused delays for drivers Wednesday morning.

Houston police responded to the crash around 7 a.m.

SkyEye flew over the scene, where a small school bus from Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory High School could be seen stopped in the middle of the freeway. Three other cars also appeared to be involved.
