SPRING, Texas --A 21-year-old man is due in court today after police say he stole a Spring ISD bus and crashed it.
Spring ISD police officers say Oscar Nunez Jimenez was shirtless when he jumped the fence at the Spring ISD bus barn Tuesday morning on Richey Road and stole a bus from the facility.
Jimenez allegedly got into a bus that was about to be washed. Fortunately, there were no kids inside the vehicle.
Surveillance video from inside the bus shows Jimenez driving the bus off the property, and the moment of impact when the bus collides with another vehicle. The impact from the crash caused Jimenez to fly out of the driver's seat and sent papers flying all around the bus.

The joy ride ended with Jimenez in handcuffs.

Jimenez is charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
