Students injured in NE MO school bus crash

   Authorities in northeast Missouri say nearly two dozen students are recovering from injuries after their school bus crashed Tuesday afternoon.

   The accident happened around 3:30 p.m. north of the town of Ewing in Lewis County. Missouri State Highway Patrol officials say the bus veered off the road and rolled over into a ditch.  

   There's no word on why the driver lost control or the driver's condition.  

   Police say 18 students suffered minor injuries and five were more seriously hurt.  Most were treated at a hospital in Quincy.  

   Ewing is about 140 miles northwest of St. Louis.

   WADSWORTH, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities say a school bus carrying more than two dozen elementary school children has overturned in northern Illinois.

   Television footage from the scene near the village of Wadsworth shows the bus on its side, with two mangled cars nearby. Debris was scattered in an adjacent farm field.

   Lake County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sgt. Sara Balmes (bahl-MEHS') told The Associated Press that there was no immediate word on injuries, although scores of emergency vehicles surrounded the wreck.

   The bus was taking 25 children to Newport Elementary School, which is about 45 miles north of Chicago.

   The accident happened around 8 a.m. about a mile from the school, which has some 400 students in kindergarten through 5th grade.
