Last injured student discharged from hospital

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- The last student among 17 who were seriously injured in an East Tennessee school bus crash has been discharged by a hospital.

A spokeswoman for Johnson City Medical Center told the Johnson City Press that Cheyenne Bunton is no longer a patient there.

The girl's father said she received back injuries when a Washington County school bus rolled at least three times last Thursday as it carried David Crockett High School students home from classes. There were no deaths in the crash.

A Tennessee Highway Patrol report on the crash, which involved only the bus, is expected this week.
