MONONA, Iowa - Officials say 23 students and a bus driver from the MFL MarMac School District were taken to area hospitals after a school bus accident near Monona in northeast Iowa.

The accident happened on U.S. Highway 18 about 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Superintendent Dale Crozier says there were 23 students, ranging from elementary school to high school, on the bus.  All the students and the bus driver were taken to three hospitals to be checked over. Crozier says all but one student was released, and that student was kept for observation.

Crozier says there was patchy fog in the area at the time of the accident, which is being investigated by the Iowa State Patrol.

The school district is comprised of Monona, Farmersburg, Luana (loo-AY'-nuh), Marquette and McGregor.
