HOUSTON – A 13-year-old girl is now in critical condition after officials say she jumped from a moving school bus and onto the Gulf Freeway Monday.

The Galveston County Sheriff’s office says two girls on the bus got into some sort of argument while they were on their way back to Galveston.

Authorities say the bus driver separated the two girls and say the girl then opened the emergency door and jumped onto the freeway.

Galveston ISD issued a statement saying that the incident is being investigated.
