LOUISIVLLE, Ky. (AP) — Officials say 41 students in Kentucky have been injured in a crash involving three school buses.

Jefferson County Public Schools spokesman Daniel Kemp told news outlets the crash happened Thursday morning on a highway in Louisville as the students were being transported to three different schools. He said student injuries appear to be minor.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said two buses were stopped in traffic when a third bus hit one and caused it to hit the other.

The school district's transportation director, Randy Frantz, said another bus was sent to take uninjured students on to school.
