FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say more than a dozen children were injured when a school bus overturned in Franklin County.

State Trooper Curtis Summerville says the accident happened shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday on Highway 73.

Authorities say a Chevrolet Silverado collided with the Vina High School bus, causing the bus to turn over on its side.

Summerville said about 29 children were on the bus at the time of the wreck.

The bus driver, 58-year-old Rebecca Gober of Vina, helped the students escape through the roof.

Authorities say at least four patients were transferred to hospitals by medical helicopters. Authorities say most of the children sustained injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
