RUNNELS COUNTY – A 20-year-old Midlothian student was released from Ballinger Memorial Hospital  Saturday, Nov. 5 after being involved in a bus crash on Friday, Nov. 4.

Kendra Unamba, a sophomore at Abilene Christian University, was en route to Medina for a weekend of mission work with 11 other students, three faculty members and a faculty member’s wife when the driver lost control of the university owned passenger bus heading southbound on Highway 83 as the group approached a slight curve shortly after 3 p.m. at the intersection of County Road 234 in Runnels County.

According to reports, the bus struck a concrete culvert and overturned, ejecting several passengers before it came to rest upright on the shoulder of the highway, ultimately killing 19-year-old Anabel Reid of Petersburg. 

Passengers were sent to area hospitals. 

Dr. Jim Cooke, of Abilene, and Kathleen Henderson, a junior from Rock Port, 

were released the same day as Unamba.
