. June 7, Associated Press – (Kentucky) Dozens hurt as tour bus flips. Dozens of students and parents were injured June 6 when a tour bus carrying them on a trip to Washington, D.C., overturned in Hart County, Kentucky, just moments into the trip, officials said. About two dozen people aboard the bus were transported for medical treatment, the Hart County Schools superintendent said. One person suffered a head injury, and others had broken bones. The driver of the tour bus was traveling east on 728 when he failed to negotiate a curve, causing the bus to leave the roadway and turn over on its side, a public affairs officer for Kentucky State Police (KSP) Post 3 said in a news release. The bus was carrying 55 people, including 20 adults, 34 children and the driver. The students, from the Cub Run community, were mostly sixth- to eighth-graders; some were from high school. The trip was not school-related. Assisting the KSP at the crash were crews from at least 10 agencies, including a sheriff’s office deputies, EMS, and fire departments.
