LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky school bus overturned on Interstate 64 Tuesday morning, injuring some students and shutting down westbound lanes of the roadway, officials said.

Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Carolyn Callahan told WDRB-TV that 21 students were on the bus and some were injured, though how many and the extent of the injuries wasn’t immediately clear.

TV video from the scene showed the bus on its side in a grassy area near the highway surrounded by emergency vehicles.

The bus was carrying students to Noe Middle School and Manual High School, school officials said. Uninjured students were being taken to Waggener High School to be reunited with their families.

Louisville Metro Police were investigating. No further information was immediately released.
