BURNET, Texas (AP) — Investigators say two teenage siblings have died after their car hit a stopped school bus operated by their Central Texas district.

The Department of Public Safety on Friday identified the victims as the driver, 16-year-old Sierra Hardin, and 14-year-old Caleb Hardin of Bertram.

A school spokeswoman says counselors were on hand Friday at Burnet High School, where the girl was a sophomore and her brother was a freshman.

DPS says the accident happened around 4 p.m. Thursday at an intersection near Burnet, about 50 miles northwest of Austin. The car struck the rear of a Burnet Consolidated Independent School District bus.

DPS says more than a dozen students were on the bus and one youngster suffered minor injuries.

Bertram is about 10 miles east of Burnet.
