BRIGHTON, Colo. — Six special needs students and two adults suffered minor injuries in a rollover crash of a school bus on Wednesday morning, the Brighton Police Department said.

The 27J Schools bus rolled over near East 136th Avenue and Buckley Road about 8:15 a.m.

The bus had six students who are enrolled in a program for children with autism at Prairie View High School.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The students were taken to Children’s Hospital Colorado at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. The hospital said all six are in good condition. As of about 4:45 p.m., all but one of the students had been released.

The adults, the driver of the bus and a paraprofessional, were taken to UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital for evaluation.

No one was seriously injured, district spokeswoman Tracy Rudnick said, adding many of the students were able to walk off the bus.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Police said drugs, alcohol and speed are not suspected to be factors in the crash.
