DANVILLE — Authorities say 15 children were taken to a hospital after a charter bus carrying students from the Missouri School for the Deaf overturned in eastern Missouri.
Department of Elementary and Secondary Education spokeswoman Sarah Potter said none of the students has life-threatening injuries. She said the injuries appear to be minor.
Police say the crash happened about 1:30 p.m. Friday near Danville as the bus was exiting Interstate 70.
Two chaperones and the driver also were taken to University Hospital in Columbia. Hospital spokeswoman Mary Jenkins said the adults also suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Interpreters from the school and the hospital are helping translate for the children, who range in age from 10 to 18.
Potter said children were heading home after the end of their summer term.
