BEAUMONT, Texas It was a close call for 21 middle school students in Beaumont.

They were headed to school Wednesday morning when a tree fell on their bus. The tree also hit an RV and took down a power line.

The students were able to get out through the rear emergency exit. The fire department believes the tree fell because its root system was weakened by the recent rain.

There were no reported injuries.
