OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – The driver of the school bus that overturned in Bonner Springs last week has been released from the hospital.

Elmer Scott Jr. was the most seriously injured of those who were hurt when the bus went off Kansas Highway 7 on Aug. 21.

He was driving sixth-grade girls from The Pembroke Hill School in Kansas City to a camp in Linwood, Kan., when the bus went off the right side of the road and tipped over.

Twenty-two students were taken to hospitals but none were seriously injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
