Children escape serious injury in W. Tennessee bus wreck

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Memphis city school bus has overturned, sending four children and two drivers to hospitals.

City Schools spokeswoman Staci Franklin said the bus was headed to Sherwood Middle School on Tuesday when it collided with another vehicle.

Franklin said there were only four students on the bus and they were quickly removed from it. The driver was trapped for a time before rescuers freed him.

Franklin said the bus driver had serious injuries and was sent to the hospital, but the children received only minor hurts.

The cause of the crash wasn't immediately known.
