Superintendent Tom Edington says a Wawasee (wah-wah-SEE') High School sophomore was transferred to a Fort Wayne hospital for further assessment, but her injuries weren't believed to be serious. He says most students suffered bumps and bruises in Wednesday's crash near North Webster, while one student had a broken hand and another broke a collarbone.

The most serious injury was to bus driver John Wagoner, who was flown by helicopter to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne. A hospital spokeswoman says he was in fair condition Thursday.

Edington says about two-thirds of the 125 students were evaluated by medical personnel on the scene or at hospitals.
