A school bus overturned near Houston on Friday, causing “multiple” injuries, the local sheriff said.
The bus rolled over while carrying students from schools in Crosby, Texas, northeast of Houston, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.
“We can confirm there are multiple injuries reported — we are not aware of the extent of injuries,” the sheriff’s office said in a second tweet.
The sheriff’s office and the school district both said that contrary to initial reports there were no students trapped inside the overturned bus.
“Bus 213 was involved in a serious bus accident. Paramedics are on the scene of the accident and at this time there are no life-threatening injuries to report,” Crosby Independent School District said in a post on its Facebook page. “Students are currently being evaluated by medical personnel.”
The district said students from the bus would be transported to an operations center once they had been evaluated.
