School bus lands in ditch after crash in Iowa

VAN HORNE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a school bus landed nose first in a ditch following a morning crash in eastern Iowa, but no one was seriously injured.

The Benton County school bus collided with another vehicle Monday morning on a rural road south of Van Horne. The impact knocked the bus into the side of the road.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (http://bit.ly/15Rzuip ) both drivers were taken to a local hospital, but their injuries did not appear to be serious. A disabled student on board the bus was securely strapped into place and did not appear to be injured.

A crane later removed the bus from the ditch.
