SHREVEPORT, Louisiana (CNN) -- A school bus with about 30 children on board overturned in a rural area near Shreveport on Wednesday, the second such crash in the area in as many days.
Twelve children were taken to the hospital suffering from what were being described as minor injuries. The bus allegedly ran a stop sign and slammed into a ditch near the town of Keatchie, in southern Caddo Parish.
On Tuesday, more than 30 students were injured when the bus they were traveling on overturned in northern Caddo Parish. Last month, dozens of high school students were injured in a bus crash in Shreveport.
