MINERVA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say 20 people were taken to a hospital with injuries that aren’t life-threatening after a bus carrying Bronx college students home from a weekend retreat overturned on a snowy Adirondack highway.

State police say a bus operated by W&D; Tours of Brooklyn was southbound on state Route 28N in Minerva shortly after 10:30 a.m. Monday when it slid off the road, toppled down a bank and landed on its roof.

Police say the bus carried 36 SUNY Maritime College students, two staff members and the driver. Rescuers took four injured passengers to Glens Falls Hospital. The rest were taken to Minerva Central School. Sixteen were later treated for minor injuries at the hospital.

Minerva is 75 miles north of Albany.
