Three special needs students, in wheelchairs, have suffered minor injuries. After being hit by a car, the Central Texas school bus flipped on its roof.

Officials with the Copperas Cove Independent School District say three children, an attendant and the bus driver were slightly hurt in Friday afternoon's wreck. Emergency personnel had to cut specially designed restraints to free the children.  

Officials say a woman driving the car was also transported to a Killeen hospital to be checked, as a precaution. 

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the accident happened at an intersection when the northbound bus was struck when the car failed to stop. Thankfully there were no major injuries for anyone involved.
