WAXAHACHIE, Texas (AP) - Authorities say 12 elementary students have been slightly hurt when their school bus overturned on a North Texas highway as the driver became distracted.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says the Waxahachie Independent School District bus ended up on its side Tuesday morning.
Trooper James Colunga says 19 children and the driver were on board during the wreck midway between Waxahachie and Boyce. He says 12 children have injuries not believed to be life-threatening and were transported to hospitals to be checked. The driver wasn't hurt.
Colunga says the driver was monitoring the children, became distracted, the bus wheels left the road and the vehicle overturned during the morning route.
School district officials did not immediately identify the driver.
Waxahachie is 25 miles south of Dallas.
