One victim of Wednesday's bus crash is still in DeTar Hospital Navarro.

Judith Barefield, DeTar spokeswoman, said the victim is in fair condition.

Another victim who was at Citizens Medical Center has also been released, Citizens' spokeswoman Shannon Spree said.

Trooper Gerald Bryant said they don't know the identity of the 18-wheeler driver who reportedly blocked the viewpoint of Larry Marceaux, whose pickup hit the bus.

"It's unsure if he stayed or stopped or how long he was there, but as the investigation began we were not able to locate him," Bryant said.

Bryant said the 18-wheeler driver is not being pursued and was not required to stay, since he wasn't in violation of any laws by just slowing down and turning.
