CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Emergency workers in North Carolina say 14 students and their driver were hurt, none seriously, when a school bus ran down an embankment and hit a house in Charlotte.

The Charlotte Fire Department told local media outlets that the crash occurred Tuesday morning.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg school officials say there were 22 students on the bus, which was headed to a middle school.

The Medic emergency medical service said the injuries were minor. Authorities said the driver was briefly trapped in the vehicle.

The only person in the house was not hurt. It appeared that damage was confined to the deck of the home.

Authorities say the bus went off the road and hit a parked car before continuing down the hill, hitting a house.
