The driver of the white BMW sedan had a gunshot wound that authorities believe was sustained during an altercation inside an apartment complex nearby.

Gonzalez said the driver, who has not been identified, was driving away from the apartment when he passed out and slammed into the left-front tire of the school bus.

He was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition and is expected to survive.
