Bus Carrying Union County Softball Team Overturns

By WFIE | 


A Union County High School bus overturned on Highway 60, just east of Smithland, Kentucky.

The school bus ran off the right shoulder, and overturned on the passenger side while transporting 24 Union County High School softball players and 4 adults.

There were no life-threatening injuries, but one patient was air-lifted due to the limited number of ambulances.

Due to the crash, the road has been shut down and law enforcement expects it to be reopen by 9:00 P.M. Friday night.

Union Co. Schools are asking that everyone sends prayers to girls and officials on the scene.
