SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A school official says 13 students in Shelby County have been taken to a hospital after two buses crashed near a high school.

Ryan Allan, who is the spokesman for Shelby County Public Schools, told media that the crash happened Tuesday morning near the entrance to Shelby County High School when there was confusion about which bus had the right of way.

Allan said both buses were travelling at a low speed when they collided. One bus was empty except for the driver. The other was carrying about 20 students to the Area Technology Center.

Allan said 13 students were taken to Jewish Hospital to be checked out. He said none of the injuries were serious.

Both bus drivers were also taken to the hospital.
