Posted:

TOWN OF WALWORTH, Wis. (AP) -- One student has suffered a minor head injury after a school bus crash in Walworth County.

The sheriff's office says the bus carrying five students rolled onto its side in a ditch in the Town of Walworth just before 3 p.m. Friday.

The five students attend Big Foot High School. The injured student was taken to a hospital. The other four students were taken back to the school, where they were to be picked up by their parents.

Authorities say the 43-year-old bus driver lost control while heading west on Beloit Road, entered the eastbound lane and ran into the ditch.

The Wisconsin State Patrol and Walworth County crash investigators were on the scene.
