CAVE CITY, KY (WAVE) - A school bus carrying more than a dozen Louisville Collegiate students rolled over Thursday morning and sent everybody to the hospital. Thirty-five fourth graders from Louisville Collegiate School were headed south for an all day field trip at Mammoth Cave in two school buses.
"I'm just glad it didn't turn out worse with kids, any accident is bad, but it's worse with kids," said Bart Logsdon with T.J. Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow.
Kentucky State Police say the bus driver, 39-year-old Lawrence Austin, Sr., lost control after a semi truck passed him on the interstate. Police say he moved towards the right side of the road and then overturned once hitting an embankment.
"They did get into inclement weather that we've seen, and just hazardous road conditions," said Elizabeth Post with Louisville Collegiate School.
All 16 students and three adults onboard were rushed to T.J. Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow.
"We saw broken bones, lacerations, and cuts," said Logsdon. "We also had a potential back injury and a potential concussion."
Police say there is no evidence that shows the semi impacted the bus causing it to rollover.
"Of course it is very unfortunate but we are very happy to know that everyone is ok," said Post.
Kosair Children's Hospital tells WAVE 3 six students were taken there for treatment. Five are back home, and one student stayed overnight.
