The buses were carrying students from Pasadena Memorial High School en route to NRG Stadium for graduation. Backup buses were sent to transport them.

Pasadena ISD decided to delay graduation Thursday as they waited for students who were treated and released from the hospital to arrive at NRG Stadium. Nine of the 11 students made it to graduation on time.

District officials said two others still in the hospital will get private graduation ceremonies at a later date.

The remaining students in the hospital are being evaluated by doctors.
