GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Authorities say dozens of students have been sent to hospitals after a Davidson County elementary school bus overturned.

School officials say the bus with 38 students onboard was headed to Midway Elementary School at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when it was involved in a wreck with a truck pulling a trailer.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says the bus was headed south when its driver overcorrected to avoid a truck that crossed the center line. The bus overturned. Troopers say charges are pending against the truck driver.

Authorities say 31 students were sent to hospitals, but Assistant Davidson County 9-1-1 director Dwayne Condrey says none of the injuries were thought to be serious.

Seven uninjured students were picked up from the scene by their parents.
