PRYOR, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says three students were injured after the school bus they were riding in ran off a county road and struck a tree.
A preliminary patrol report says the collision happened Thursday afternoon four miles west of Pryor in Mayes County.
The bus was carrying 19 students ranging from pre-kindergarten to junior high school.
The report says two of the three injured students were treated and released from a hospital. The third student was taken to the hospital with head injuries and was in fair condition.
Troopers say inattention or another distraction inside the vehicle caused the 70-year-old bus driver to run off the road and crash.
