COPY-School bus, log truck collide in Winona

WINONA, Miss. (AP) - Montgomery County school officials say about 20 students suffered some injuries Friday when a school bus collided with a log truck in Winona.

County school superintendent Sammie McCaskill says the students ranged from elementary through high school and were being transported to school in Kilmichael when the accident occurred shortly after 7 a.m.

Winona police say the school bus was turned and flipped on its side. Police say the truck was not carrying logs at the time of the accident.

McCaskill says three students were transferred to University Medical Center in Jackson.

McCaskill says nearly all the students on the bus were injured to some extent and are receiving treatment at Tyler Holmes Memorial Hospital.

The accident occurred at the intersection of U.S. Highway 82 and Lodi Road.
