Dozens hospitalized after tour bus crashes in Kentucky

Dozens of people were hospitalized Wednesday evening when a tour bus overturned in central Kentucky.

The bus was carrying 55 people, including 34 school students, on a trip to Washington when it failed to negotiate a curve on Route 728 in Hart County shortly before 6:00pm, The Bowling Green Daily News reported.

The students were from Cub Run Elementary School, located not far from where the crash occurred. The charter bus had only just left the school minutes before the crash.

Kentucky State Police trooper Jonathan Biven said those injured were taken to three separate hospitals by ambulances and private vehicles, but said injuries were not life-threatening.

The bus was removed roughly three hours later.
