A school bus overturned Tuesday morning in Charlotte, North Carolina causing minor injuries to two children and two adults. The driver reportedly swerved to avoid a log in the road. The bus rolled down an embankment and came to rest on its roof.

The children on the bus were 3 and 4 year-olds from the Bethlehem Center Head Start program. The bus was carrying 18 children, all strapped into safety seats in accordance with North Carolina law. The uninjured were transferred to a second bus and taken to school.
