Bus Carrying Drum and Bugle Corps Rolls Over


K2's Ophelia Young reports, oyoung@k2tv.com:



39 drum and bugle corps. members, mostly teens, were injured this morning in a bus rollover as they were traveling from Wyoming to Indiana on tour.

The director says all 39 were released as of noon. They suffered bumps, bruises, scrapes and injuries no more severe than a fractured pinky finger.

At about 7 this morning, the bus's right front tire blew on I-80 traveling through Pottawattamie County, Iowa. The driver lost control, rolled into an embankment as the bus tipped over and continued to slowly slide.

Everybody on the bus was transported to four different hospitals in the area.

The director of the corps. says he will fly out to make sure all members are comfortable to continue their two week tour to Indiana.
