MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities in West Tennessee say a school bus crash has injured the driver and 10 children.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the bus carrying 32 students crossed a highway center line and struck a Freightliner truck Monday afternoon. The bus then left the roadway and hit a tree.

Shelby County Fire Department spokesman Brent Perkins says the bus driver is in serious condition. He says 52-year-old Jacqueline McKinley was the only one who was seriously hurt. The injured were taken to hospitals.

The driver of the truck, which was towing a loaded trailer, was injured but didn't go to the hospital.

Highway patrol troopers are investigating.
