BONNER SPRINGS, Kansas (AP) — Several children are injured after their school bus crashed in Midwestern Kansas state, but officials say no one was seriously hurt.

The bus overturned Wednesday afternoon in while carrying students from a private school.

School spokeswoman Beth Bryant says eight sixth-grade girls were hurt but that no one suffered life-threatening injuries.

Bryant says the bus was carrying 30 sixth-grade girls to a campout when it crashed along a ramp. She says the other 22 girls were being taken to a local high school to be picked up by their parents.

Television images showed the bus on its side, with paramedics placing children on stretchers.
