There were a total of 110 people on the two buses. The passengers had just completed boot camp at Fort Sill, Oklahoma and were on their way to Fort Sam Hoiuston in San Antonio.

Fort Worth officials said the vehicles involved in the accident were part of a convoy of five buses traveling together. One of the buses rear-ended another in the convoy.
