Decatur County Superintendent Tim Cochran said the kids, chaperones and teachers on the bus were taken to the hospital to be checked for injuries. Many kids were a little shaken, he said, but no injuries were reported, and the last of the kids returned home early Saturday morning.

The bus was returning from Lowndes County after a choral performance.
