The accident happened in Smithland, Ky., shortly before 5 p.m. Central Times on U.S. 60. The bus, on its way to a night-time game, was carrying the Union County High School girl’s softball team, AP reported.

The bus somehow drove off the right shoulder of the highway, veered into the other side of the road, and then rotated and rolled on its side, according to AP. Authorities said that 25 people were transported to local hospitals with non-serious injuries.

One person was airlifted for treatment, but didn’t have life-threatening injuries, AP said.
