ABILENE, Texas - The Iraan-Sheffield ISD school bus involved in a fatal wreck on Dec. 2 was taken Thursday to a scrap yard in Abilene to be salvaged.
The bus was carrying the Iraan High School cheerleader team along with two sponsors, Liz Pope and Christina Garlock, back home following a football game in Colorado City. A vehicle driving the wrong way on Interstate 20 caused a collision between the bus and an 18-wheeler.
Pope was killed in the crash, and many others inside the bus were sent to the hospital with injuries. Garlock sustained serious injuries and was hospitalized for multiple days.
A DPS report indicates that the driver of the original car who caused the crash may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but no charges have been filed at this time.
A week after the crash, hundreds of cheerleaders from around the state showed up to support the squad during Iraan's playoff game against Wimberley in Abilene.
