CARNEGIE, Pa. (AP) – Six students from a Pittsburgh-area Catholic high school have suffered minor injuries after their school bus was rear-ended and overturned.

Collier Township police say the incident happened about 7 a.m. Tuesday on the Interstate 79 ramp at the Noblestown/Carnegie interchange.

A spokeswoman for Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School in Moon Township says six students were on board, and three were taken to St. Clair Hospital as a precaution. The students were complaining of minor soreness, bumps, bruises and bloody noses.

Police haven’t released the name of the driver who rear-ended the bus or said what charges might be filed.

School spokeswoman Jessica Cerchiaro says the students’ families have been contacted, and medical officials have confirmed the students are OK.
