RADFORD, Va. — Thirteen passengers from a Georgia technical college have been injured in a bus crash on a southwest Virginia highway.
Virginia State Police said the driver was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs after the crash Friday morning.
Police said students were taken to nearby hospitals, but none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.
The bus was carrying students from West Georgia Technical College, heading north on Interstate 81 when it drifted into the right lane and side-swiped a tractor-trailer. State police said the bus ran off the road, hit an embankment and overturned.
