CENTER, TX (KTRE) - A  Center ISD school bus with 10 children on board rolled onto its side Friday afternoon. Two children suffered serious injury.

Shelby County Sheriff Willis Blackwell said the bus was driving children from Center ISD to their homes about 4 p.m., going eastbound on state Hwy. 7. The driver claimed she was trying to dodge a truck before it flipped near Old Airport Road.

Blackwell said some children were taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Nobody was seriously injured.

"I know one child had a neck injury and another had a broken collarbone, but that's about all I know right now," he said.

Blackwell said authorities took the children to a nearby rodeo arena, where their parents picked them up.

DPS spokesman David Hendry confirmed there were 10 children on the bus.
