Three western Iowa students and an adult suffered minor injuries, including scrapes and bruises, when the bus they were in rolled over Thursday afternoon. A Lewis Township school bus carrying students with the Lewis Central School District  toppled onto its side into a ditch at around 3:15-p.m., after the driver of the bus apparently swerved to avoid another vehicle. The accident happened on Applewood Road in rural Pottawattamie County, near the Mills County line.  

The driver of the bus and one child, were taken to Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs. Two other children were transported to Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha. Their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

The accident remains under investigation.
