Bus Overturns, 1 Child Injured

Posted: Updated:
CITRONELLE, ALABAMA -  A school bus flipped onto its side Friday afternoon on Boothtown Road near Citronelle. Witnesses blaming a dirt road and wet conditions for the crash.

"All we heard was a bunch of kids jumping around outside the bus they didn't know what just happened," said a witness.

10 students were on board, all escaping with the bus driver through a back door. All were students at Citronelle High School and Lott Middle School. 

"None of them were really scared. They just didn't know what really happened," he says.

At least one of the children, a middle school student, was injured when the bus slid onto its side. We're told he had a few bumps and bruises, but he's expected to be okay.
