Minor Injuries Reported After SeMo School Bus Crashes

LESTERVILLE, MO - All 31 people aboard a school bus carrying a high school volleyball team were taken to hospitals after the bus overturned in southeast Missouri.

The bus was carrying students from Viburnum High School to nearby Lesterville in Reynolds County when it crashed late yesterday afternoon.

A woman answering phones at the high school said all 31 people on the bus were taken to hospitals for treatment or evaluation.

The Highway Patrol says the bus overturned in northern Reynolds County, about 90 miles southwest of St. Louis.  No other vehicles were involved in the accident, and the patrol is still trying to determine what caused the wreck.

The patrol says most of the injuries are minor.  One student suffered broken bones.
