Special needs bus flips in Saraland

SARALAND (AP) — A special needs school bus carrying two Mobile County public school students veered off of Interstate 65 Tuesday afternoon and flipped over in the median, Saraland police said.

The bus driver was ejected and was flown to the University of South Alabama Medical Center, said Saraland police Sgt. Leroy Smith.

Smith said the students and a teacher's aid appear to have suffered only minor injuries and were taken to USA Medical Center by ambulance, according to reports.

One of the students goes to Satsuma High School and the other goes to Adams Middle School, Smith said. They were being taken home.

In a statement, the school system described the full-sized bus that has a wheelchair lift as a "special needs bus." The statement did not say whether the students had special needs.
