None of the seven adults and five children will spend the night in the hospital.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- None of the 12 people injured when a school bus carrying severely disabled students crashed will spend the night in a hospital.

IU Health spokeswoman, Sally Winter, says two adults and three children treated after Thursday's accident will be released, and Indianapolis St. Vincent Hospital spokesman, Johnny Smith, says four adults and two children treated there have already been discharged.

Indiana State Police spokesman, Sgt. Rich Myers, says one other adult was injured. That patient's status was not immediately clear, but Myers says no one was seriously injured.

Myers says a truck changing lanes moved in front of the bus on Interstate 65 just north of Indianapolis Thursday afternoon. The bus driver tells police she swerved into the soft median to avoid the truck and the bus rolled over.


Six of the 12 people injured when a school bus carrying severely disabled students crashed, have been released from a hospital.

Indianapolis St. Vincent Hospital spokesman, Johnny Smith, says it treated four adults and two children ages 8-10, and they've all been discharged.

A doctor at Methodist Hospital tells The Indianapolis Star three children and two adults are in good condition with no serious trauma.


Indiana State Police spokesman Rich Myers said a semi was changing lanes on Interstate 65 near Zionsville about 2:00 p.m. EDT Thursday, when it cut in front of the bus. The bus driver tells police she swerved into the soft median to avoid the truck and then the bus rolled over..

Myers said five children and seven adults were hurt, but none of the injuries are life-threatening. Several were hospitalized, but their conditions weren't immediately known.

Myers says the truck that caused the crash did not stop. He says the truck was described as either a white box truck or a white semitrailer.
