DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We want to bring you up to date on the breaking news story that we showed you just a little while ago, the school bus accident in Waxahachie, Texas. That's just south of Dallas.

We have with us on the phone right now Candace Ahlfinger with the school district there.

Candace, can you tell us exactly what happened as we look at these pictures of the bus being turned back upright.

CANDACE AHLFINGER, WAXAHATCHIE INDEP. SCHOOL DIST.: We have had a bus accident with minor injuries. The sheriff's office is looking into it to know the details and will be releasing those as he discovers the cause of the accident.

Two of our students have already been released to parents, and two are being transported to the hospital, to -- as precautionary measures, as has the bus driver.

KAGAN: So there were only four students on board at time.

AHLFINGER: Correct.

KAGAN: Is that because it was early in the route or this bus doesn't pick up that many kids.

AHLFINGER: I believe it was early in the route.

KAGAN: And we don't exactly what happened, what caused the accident in the first place.

AHLFINGER: Correct.

KAGAN: And the good news is everyone is OK, the driver and the four kids that were onboard.

AHLFINGER: Right. Right.

KAGAN: Very good. Just to want to bring up our viewers up to date on that story. That's Candace Ahlfinger with the Waxahatchie school district in Texas.
