Several injured in school bus wreck near Emporia

The Kansas Highway Patrol says several people were injured when a school bus rolled onto its side near Emporia.

Patrol Lt. Dave Hundley says none of the injuries were serious but he did not yet have an exact number of injured.

The accident occurred early Wednesday on the Kansas Turnpike about 14 miles south of Emporia.  Hundley says the area was receiving moderate snow at the time and it appears that played a part in the accident but investigators were still trying to determine what happened. The bus was transporting students from the Wichita school district.

No further information was immediately available.
