- Several students were injured after a school bus tipped over in Bemidji, Minnesota Wednesday morning.
First responders on the scene used hatches and the bus' rear entrance to remove students, an eyewitness said.
Emergency dispatchers say a school bus was involved in a minor crash this afternoon in Harrisburg.
Investigators learned the bus was travelling southbound on Irvine and the driver of the passenger auto had been eastbound on South Movil Lake Road and drove through the stop sign striking the school bus in the right side causing the school bus to lose control and swerve into the soft shoulder on the west side of Irvine rolling on its side in the ditch, according to the Beltrami County Sheriff's Department.
Sanford Health officials said people may also report to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center's Education C room, 1300 Anne St. N.W., Bemidji.
He said one child had facial lacerations, another sustained a broken arm, and one child may have some internal injuries.More news: Red Sox permanently ban fan for racial slur at another fan

"One minute everything was normal and, just like that, we were scared for our lives", student Jonathan Blount said."We thought we were going to die".
Authorities on Thursday also identified the driver of the school bus.
Sheriff Phil Hodnapp says the driver of the passenger vehicle was unfamiliar with the area, drove through a stop sign and crashed into the bus.
"The children were all cared for quickly by the school bus driver", Hodapp said.
Officials set up triage treatment areas under color-coded sun shades in a vacant lot, and Jones said uninjured children were being reunited with parents in a nearby hardware store parking lot.
Shannon Westhoff, a spokesperson for Sanford Medical Center, said there's a waiting area at the hospital for parents, and a hotline - 218-333-6040 - for parents to call. A few, Hess said, are headed back to school.
