Officers in Arlington, Texas, received a call at about 5:30 a.m. about a blue SUV that had run into a barrier wall and was blocking the high-speed travel lane after having been seen swerving, Arlington Police Lieutenant Christopher Cook said. Shortly after, the Greyhound bus hit the vehicle, he added.
