39 kids were on board when this bus rolled over this afternoon while taking them from school to a track meet.

 

13 of the 39 students have injuries and some are very serious.  How serious, we don’t know yet.  The bus crashed on Highway 26 just west of Richfield, Idaho this afternoon.  The Idaho State Police say the rollover occurred right next to the Dietrich exit.

 

All the students attend Carey Junior High and were on their way to a track meet.  Five of them were airlifted to the hospital and another five were taken by ambulance.  Six of the students are being treated at St. Luke’s in Twin Falls.  Other students were transported to St. Luke’s Wood River in Ketchum as well as hospitals in Jerome, Gooding, and Pocatello.

 

As of now… fourteen students have been released to their parents.  The rest are being evaluated for injuries.

 

We have no word on the condition of the bus driver or two coaches that were escorting the kids.
