DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) - Fourteen elementary students have been injured in a school bus accident in Dinwiddie County.

Virginia State Police say the bus ran off the road and hit a tree around 8 a.m. Monday.

According to Molnar, 41 students were on board the bus, which was traveling to Sutherland Elementary School when the accident occurred.
