NEWBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say four of 29 students on a school bus involved in a minor crash have been taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Police say all injuries were considered minor in the crash, which happened at about 7:15 a.m. Monday in Newbury.

They say the driver, 65-year-old William Jones, of Piermont, New Hampshire, was traveling east on a road when he tried to make room for an oncoming vehicle. He steered the bus toward the edge of the road, but his passenger-side tires traveled onto the soft shoulder, which began to give way from the bus’ weight.

Jones was unable to steer it back onto the road. A couple of trees prevented the bus from rolling all the way over.

The students attended Newbury Elementary School and Oxbow High School.
