DALE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - A school bus lays on it's side in the middle of a muddy rural Dale County road. The emergency exit door stands wide-open as investigators walk around the wreckage, trying to determine the cause of the accident.

The bus was traveling down New Hope Road in Midland City Tuesday afternoon, carrying students home from classes.

Dale County School Superintendent Phillip Parker says some students were transported to an area hospital after the crash, with all indications pointing to no life-threatening injuries.

Students that weren't injured were taken to nearby Dale County High School where their parents could pick them up.
