Transcript for 23 Students Injured in Tennessee Bus Crash
Next tonight, chaos on a highway after a school bus driver loses control. At least 23 students among the injured tonight. Two with critical injuries. This evening, the investigation. Here's Steve osunsami. Reporter: This was supposed to be a scholastic achievement trip for dozens of high school students from Chester county, Tennessee. But instead tonight, 23 of them are recovering from injuries on the highway, after one of their school buses lost control exiting onto this offramp. And it flipped back over to the left side and it turned over. Reporter: First responders outside Nashville needed a long line of stretchers. Students who weren't hurt stood together, and prayed for those who were. There were three buses total. All headed to the opryland hotel in Nashville. Police say the 28-year-old driver in the front bus veered to far to the left, and then overcorrected, striking the guardrail to the right, and that sent the bus flying. Students had to get out through exits in back, and through the ceiling. Police say two have critical arm injuries. Another has a broken collarbone. Police say don't believe the bus driver was impaired in any way, and say the bus has only been in service for about a year.
