4 students from school bus crash still in hospital

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- More David Crockett High School students have been released from a Johnson City hospital, following a school bus rollover last week.

The Johnson City Press reported just four students were still under hospital care Sunday evening.

A total of 26 students and their bus driver were taken to hospitals Thursday afternoon after a Washington County school bus ran off a road and rolled at least three times down a grade.

Cheyenne Bunton's father said his 16-year-old daughter is doing a lot better as she recovers from fractured vertebrae and a head abrasion. Cheyenne was airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center after the crash because of the severity of her injuries.

All four of the students still in the hospital are in stable condition.
