Several students were injured but no fatalities were reported after a school bus crash in Cleburne County this morning.

According to preliminary reports, Alabama State Troopers received a call about a one-vehicle Ranburne High School bus wreck at 11:27 a.m., said Trooper Charles Dysart. The bus was apparently traveling from a trade school to Ranburne High when the wreck occurred, Dysart said.

Dysart said details on the cause of the wreck, how many students were injured or how many passengers were on the bus were unavailable.

“We know some students were taken to the hospital and some were taken by their parents,” Dysart said. “We’re still trying to track everyone down.”

Hilary Folsom, spokeswoman for Regional Medical Center, confirmed that the hospital did receive a group of pa-tients from a motor vehicle accident today.

"They are currently undergoing treatment," Folsom said.

Due to federal law, Folsom could not release the names of the patients or details about their injuries.
