Charter Bus Overturns in Texas Injuring 21

SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a charter bus from Mexico rolled onto its side after swerving off a Texas interstate, injuring all 21 passengers on board.

San Marcos police Chief Howard Williams says none of the injuries appear life-threatening. He says a 4-year-old girl broke her leg and several others were airlifted to hospitals with head injuries.

The accident happened shortly after 4 a.m. Friday on northbound Interstate 35. Investigators haven't yet determined why the driver veered briefly off the road before overcorrecting. The bus rolled onto its side and came to rest across all three lanes on the highway.

Williams says the bus started in Mexico and made a scheduled stop only a few miles earlier in New Braunfels, which is about 30 miles north of San Antonio.
