Four die in Minn. bus crash

Four children died and 14 others were injured after a school bus crashed Tuesday in Cottonwood, Minn., the Associated Press reported.

Motorists who happened upon the accident became rescuers, helping the bus driver pull screaming children from the bus and taking them in their cars to the hospital.

Classes were cancelled Wednesday at the Lakeview School in Cottonwood, which has 580 children in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Police said a van struck the bus, which was transporting 28 children at the time, causing it to tip over and land on its side on a pickup truck.

The victims were taken to three different hospitals in Minnesota and South Dakota. Names and ages of the victims have not yet been released.

The police are currently investigating the accident.
