Children OK after school bus plunges into creek

A school bus with about 10 children ran off a rural bridge and plunged into a creek in Douglass, Kan., forcing the children to climb from the windows and seek safety on top of the bus.

Chris Davis, 911 director for Butler County, says the bus went off the bridge Thursday afternoon. He said bus driver was apparently injured and remained in the water an hour later. Davis didn't know the extent of the injuries.

There were no reports of injuries among the children, but Davis says they climbed out of the windows after it hit the creek and landed on its side. The children were on top of it at about 5 p.m.

Davis says crews are working to rescue the children and the driver. The cause of the accident is unclear.
