Deaf School Students in Bus Accident

More than a dozen students from the Missouri School for the Deaf had to be taken to a hospital yesterday for minor injuries after the bus they were riding in overturned on Interstate 70 near Danville, Missouri. That's less than 100 miles west of St. Louis. Eight interpreters were called into the hospital to help with the emergency. The group was headed back to their homes following the end of the summer term at the school. The bus ran a stop sign at the top of an interstate exit ramp, overturning on an embankment because of excessive speed. There were three adults on board, including the driver. Here's a video report from KOMU-TV (no captions).
