EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Highway Patrol says several children from Wichita suffered minor injuries Wednesday when a school bus they were in rolled onto its side near Emporia.

Patrol Lt. Dave Hundley said 36 students, two teachers, a chaperone and the driver were aboard the bus when it went into a ditch about 14 miles south of Emporia. He said the road was slushy from snow but it wasn’t immediately clear what caused the accident. 

Seventeen children were taken to a hospital in Newton for treatment and the others were transported to Emporia High School.
